The evaluation of iron ore deposits involves several types of geological data additional to those normally collected in appraising other mineral deposits. In order to assist geologists who may be faced with the task, all of the various factors, both geological and non-geological, which can influence the viability of an iron ore resource are discussed. Essentially the procedure involves reducing of each of the items to a monetary value so that the pluses and minuses can be totalled. Thus, the relative economic potential of different deposits can be compared.
The intrinsic value of iron ore depends on its physical and chemical characteristics. For example, silica and alumina are unwanted elements, downgrading iron grade and adversely affecting high temperature processing, attracting penalties in smelter contracts. For this reason, an informed knowledge of processing characteristics and product quality of the ore is valuable and cost effective during mine planning and processing.
Ore variability is a significant factor that affects metallurgical behaviour and efficiency of ore processing equipment. Ore of sufficient chemical and physical quality needs to be modelled, mined, processed and usually blended. Feed and product assays are commonly used to assess potential ore upgradability. However, assays alone cannot be all informative of actual processing response given the variability of the physical properties of the ore.
Bulk sampling for each ore typewas carried out across the deposit for metallurgical testing. Multivariatestatistical models were developed for prediction of product quality for eachgeometallurgical unit. A new approach for modelling yield based on ore upgradefactors is introduced. These models were then applied to the Kings regularisedmining model to assess product quality across the mining blocks and to planproduct stockpiling and blending strategies.

Iron ore tailing is a by-product generated during washing of iron ore amp its amounts to be around 18-20 million tones per year in India. Storage of this huge amount of iron ore tailing in massive ponds pose environmental haards. This study considers two Indian sources of iron ore tailings marked as A1 and A2 amp their structural evaluation utiliing X-ray diffraction XRD and field emission.
requires iron ore which is high in iron, low in impurities particularly SiO2, Al2O3, sulphur and phosphorous. It is a prerequisite that the lumps should have high strength. Therefore, beneficiation of iron ore after mining is an important stage to prepare ore to meet both physical.

accurately estimate iron ore grades and reserves, the geology and geochemistry of the subsurface must be mapped accurately. In resource evaluation at Rio Tinto Iron Ore, block models are created through drilling and interpreting RC holes Sommerville et al., 2014. RC chips from these holes are logged and assayed in 2 m intervals.

The Nkout Cameroon and Putu Liberia oxide facies iron ore deposits comprise fresh magnetite banded iron formation BIF at depth, which weathers towards the surface, forming high grade martitegoethite ores. This study aimed to improve the mineralogical understanding of these deposits in order to predict their metallurgical responses.
The evaluation includes the providing to client an electronic conclusion or paper conclusion on request. In conclusion, are reflected the fundamental possibility impossibility of commercial separation of certain valuable components from ore under the current level of ore processing technology, without laboratory experiments and tests.

Our in-house process and mining experience covers mega mining and process projects over various types of commodities including Iron Ore, Manganese, Platinum, Coal and Diamonds. In addition to this and through our associated offices in South Africa we have access to highly experienced resources with experience in many commodities.
Iron is extracted from iron ore in a huge container called a blast furnace. Iron ores such as haematite contain ironIII oxide, Fe2O3. The oxygen must be removed from the ironIII oxide in order to leave the iron behind. Reactions in which oxygen is removed are called reduction reactions.
Carbon is more reactive than iron, so it can displace iron from ironIII oxide. Here are the equations for the reaction.
Step 1 Hot air oxygen reacts with the coke carbon to produce carbon dioxide and heat energy to heat up the furnace.
Step 2 More coke is added to the furnace and reduces the carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a good reducing agent.
In this reaction, the ironIII oxide is reduced to iron, and the carbon is oxidised to carbon dioxide.
