It is through the weathering of rocks, boric acid volatilization principally from the salt water, and the tough volcanic activity, the mine mineral boron is formed. In addition, it is also exhumed from anthropogenic resource to a certain extent. Anthropogenic sources consist of farming repudiate, and wood burnt as gas, power production using coal and oil, glass product produce, use of borates in the home and industry, etc. Having said all that, these resources are not easy to compute. Majority of borate deposits are mined by open-pit methods with the help of a truck and shovel or backhoe equipment. By far, the largest producers of boron include Turkey and the United States, accounting for 73% of the large-scale production in 2010.
More or less, all boron use is as chemical compounds. One of the leading uses of boron is to make boron polymers and ceramics that play specific roles as high-strength lightweight structural and refractory materials.
