Abstract
Borate minerals constitute the main source of boron, which covers a multitude of industrial applications. The industrial uses of borate minerals greatly depend upon its thermal properties. Thus, it is important to know them to recommend the optimal application. In this study a characterization of the mineralogy and thermal properties of borates from the Rio Grande borate deposit is presented. Large volumes of borate resources occur in Bolivia, being the most important are those from the playa-la...
