1. A process for preparing a high density calcium carbonate granulation comprising the steps of:

  • (1) mixing a composition comprising calcium carbonate powder having a median particle diameter between about 0.1 and about 20 μ

    m in a high shear mixer; and

    (2) drying the composition in a fluidized bed oven, thereby resulting in a calcium carbonate granulation having a tap density between about 0.9 g/cm3 and about 2.0 g/cm3.
