Iron ore | BHP

What is iron ore? Iron ores are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be extracted. There are four main types of iron ore deposit: massive hematite, which is the most commonly mined, magnetite, titanomagnetite, and pisolitic ironstone. These ores vary in colour from dark grey, bright yellow, or deep purple to rusty red.

Mineralisation and Ore Type – Karara Mining

Magnetite. Karara comprises a large-scale, long-life magnetite orebody amenable to bulk mining and processing. Magnetite ore has lower iron content (34-36% Fe) than hematite ore (58-64% Fe). It must be upgraded by a complex ore treatment process (beneficiation) to produce a high-grade (+65% Fe) concentrate for steelmaking.

Developments in iron ore comminution and classification technologies …

 · Due to the depleting reserves of DSO ores and increasing development of low-grade hematite and magnetite deposits, the need for iron ore beneficiation is increasing. Even the DSO ores are requiring a higher level of processing as the depth of existing mines is increasing (below water table) where ores are wet and more sticky, which creates challenges for conventional crushing and screening.


ROM iron ore with Fe less than 58 – 60% discarded as waste. After beneficiation iron ore availability can improve by about 50%. Steel community and the country demand technological solutions for utilising low grade ores. The technology task that would be 2.

Hematite from Iron Ore/Lumps

Hematite has a wide variety of other uses, but their economic significance is very small compared to the importance of iron ore. The mineral is used to produce pigments, preparations for heavy media separation, radiation shielding, ballast, and many other products

Iron Ore | Geoscience Australia

 · In 2018, Australia''s EDR of iron ore increased by 3% from 2017 to 49 604 Mt (Table 3). Similarly, there was a 4% EDR increase of contained iron to 24 122 Mt (Table 4). EDR attributable to magnetite deposits have decreased by 1%, likely due to re-assessment of projects and inactivity in the magnetite industry.

Beneficiation of Fine Iron Ores using the Desand Process

Beneficiation of Fine Iron Ores using the Desand Process. The low-grade clay-rich -1.0 mm fraction of fine iron ores have often proved difficult to upgrade and capital intensive to process when using traditional wet beneficiation technology including single or two stage hydrocyclone desliming, wet high intensity magnetic separation (WHIMS ...


After mining, the iron ore is crushed in several steps, sorted and finally shipped finely grained as iron ore fines. It´s projected to invest in a beneficiation plant to increase the iron ore content to world class.

Beneficiation of Iron Ores – IspatGuru

 · Beneficiation of Iron Ores. Iron ore is a mineral which is used after extraction and processing for the production of iron and steel. The main ores of iron usually contain Fe2O3 (70 % iron, hematite) or Fe3O4 (72 % iron. magnetite). Ores are normally associated with unwanted gangue material. Grade of iron ore is usually determined by the total ...

Low grade Iron Ore Beneficiation and the Process of Jigging – …

 · Since the iron ores consist of several compositions, mineralogies, shapes, and sizes, so there is no ''one size fits all'' approach to the beneficiation of iron ore. Most of the ''run-of-mine'' (ROM) iron ore contain a large percentage of other materials which need to be removed through the process of beneficiation before the ore attains the specifications needed for its use.

SNIM Open Pit Iron Ore Mining

SNIM Open Pit Iron Ore Mining – Mauritania. Miferma (Mines de Fer de Mauritanie) was created in 1952 to exploit iron ore deposits in the Kedia d''Idjil area of north. The Gulebs II processing plant was commissioned in November 2015. Image courtesy of SNIM. SNIM is planning to ramp up iron ore sales to 13.5Mt in 2021.

Processing of Banded Hematite Quartzite Ore for Recovery of Iron …

 · This study investigates upgrading of low-grade banded hematite quartzite iron ore (Fe ~31%). Conventional beneficiation was found to be futile. The susceptibility of iron phases to microwave exposure and their selective absorption assists in the liberation of iron values. Microwave exposure of coarse particles at 540 W for 10 min yielded a concentrate with Fe 56.30% and recovery of 50.68% ...
