Talc is a clay mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate with the chemical formula Mg 3 Si 4 O 10 (OH) 2Talc in powdered form, often in combination with corn starch, is widely used as baby powderThis mineral is used as a thickening agent and lubricant, is an ingredient in ceramics, paint and roofing material, and is also one of the main ingredients in many cosmetic products
re-investigated as techniques of mining and extraction improve These developments and the recent discovery of a nickel-sulphide deposit associated with an old talc mine suggest that mining activities in the Barberton greenstone belt are set to continue well into the foreseeable future
