Barite originates in many countries. Various grades of barite are suitable for use in chemical markets, pigment applications, industrial fillers, and drilling muds. There is a direct relationship between barite demand and oil/gas exploration and production drilling activity, which in turn depends on the present and projected price of oil and, to a lesser extent, on demand for gas. Reports of world drill rig counts are the main criteria for evaluating the potential demand for barite. Drilling activity is highly volatile. Barite is used for both its physical attributes, such as its relatively high specific gravity and/or chemical inertness (drilling mud additive, construction, functional filler), and for its chemical properties (source of barium oxide and chemical feedstock)
