Construction of the first drying plant in Boujniba
The phosphate extracted from the mines is wet and must be dried to facilitate its transport. Initially, the phosphate was put out to dry in the sun. Camels, mules and donkeys were also used to make furrows, turning the phosphate over; thus, hastening its drying. The construction of the first drying plant marked an important step in the mechanization process and significantly increased the production capacity.
