    Abstract:

    The exploration of scheelite in the Borborema Pegmatitic Province gained international notoriety from the year 1943, during the World War II, with the Brejui Mine in operation, which is located in the municipality of Currais Novos, Rio Grande do Norte State. The discovery of scheelite in the neighbouring State of Paraiba, in the locality of Quixaba, favored the implementation of School Mine, a great project developed by UFPB in partnership with SUDENE. It became an area of research and practical classes for engineering, geology, and mining students, encouraging the practice of tilling, mineral treatment and beneficiation. During all these years, many actions were carried out in a planned way, allowing researchers to recognize its economic potential and didactic importance. Several training courses have already been developed within the project by mining engineering students from UFCG and geology students from USP, culminating in details the mine geologic mapping. The present work has the main objective of understanding how the processing of scheelite on School Mine was carried out, describing all the rock processes until obtaining tungsten. The methodology used for the realization came by means of bibliographical research and visits to the School Mine in order to observe the spot, the equipment used and its functions in mineral processing.<br />KEYWORDS: Scheelite, School Mine, Mineral processing
