About The Barytes Association

The Barytes Association was formed in October 2000 with 8 founder members from Europe, North America, Africa and India.

The Barytes Association maintains close links and contacts with other similar groups and associations on a worldwide basis to ensure we are actively involved with decision makers on general promoting of our industry. We are also an associate member of Euromines who keep us informed on legislative, environmental and other matters relating to the mining and minerals industry; and also have links with IMA-North America.
