 Phosphate Rock
Phosphate rock can be any rock or sediment with sufficiently high concentrations of some form of the mineral fluorapatite (Ca to be of commercial value.
Commercial phosphate rock is usually sedimentary in origin and is used primarily as a plant nutrient, either by direct application to the soils as a powdered product or in the manufacture of superphosphate or triple super-phosphate fertilizer.
Since phosphate rock is a low-cost commodity, certain cost-limiting conditions must be met for a deposit to be minable.

 High energy phosphate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It can mean the compounds which contain these bonds, which include the nucleoside diphosphates and nucleoside triphosphates, and the high energy storage compounds of the muscle, the phosphagens.
High energy phosphate bonds are pyrophosphate bonds, acid anhydride linkages, formed by taking phosphoric acid derivatives and dehydrating them.
As a consequence, the hydrolysis of these bonds is exothermic under physiological conditions, releasing energy.
