barite-fluorite mining businesses Lijiashan Hill. Basis on strong
shareholders’ funding capabilities, 9X Minerals has acquired
Jiguanlin Hill barite mine and associated grinding facilities,
which is a production mine, the major barite products are high
quality and used in chemical grade, paint grade, brake linings (Brake Pad Grade), and medical applications (for example, a barium meal before a contrast CAT scan, X-Ray).
In 2016, 9X Minerals purchased the Maochonglin and Pancun
exploration project. A pre-feasibility study was released for the
project in 2017.

2017, the full production is 100,000 ton per annual. Then 9X
Minerals can produce and supply 380,000 ton barite per annual from
