Abstract Scope The increasing demand for pure barite as a precursor in oil and gas drilling mud cannot be over-emphasized. Despite the abundance of this mineral in Nigeria, its exploration has been facing neglect because of the lower quality that could not meet the American Petroleum Institute (API) standards. Consequently, the treatment of a Nassarawa State barite mineral through acidic and alkaline leaching techniques was purified using a Denver flotation cell at pH 9. At optimal conditions, a leaching efficiency of 87.6% was achieved. In addition, the specific gravity of the purified barite product (BaSO4: 96-900-4486, melting point = 1465C) gave 4.42 g/cm3 close to the API standard of 4.48 g/cm3. The product as characterized is therefore recommended for use as local drilling mud in the oil and gas industries to sustain the continuous operation in industries, thereby supporting human and capital development of Nigeria among others.
