Iron Ore

Iron ores are rich in iron oxides and vary in color from dark grey, bright yellow, deep purple, to rusty red. The iron itself is usually found in the form of magnetite (Fe3O4), hematite (Fe2O3), goethite, limonite or siderite. Iron ores are rocks from which metallic iron can be extracted. It is one of the most abundant rock elements, constituting about 5% of the Earth’s crust and is the 4th most common element in the world.
98% of world iron ore is used to make steel, which accounts for over 90% of all metals used in the world. Steel is used in building for so many things, from cars, trains and ships through to the high rise buildings in our cities and the bridges that connect us. Steel is used to create pipes, cars, ships, engines, roofs, nails, nuts, bolts, tools, machinery, in building & construction, to make white goods, in manufacturing, food cans and much more.

Magnetite

Magnetite

Magnetite is an iron oxide mineral that is generally black in colour and highly magnetic; the latter property aiding in the beneficiation of magnetite ores. Magnetite contains 72.4% iron, which is higher than hematite, but the presence of impurities usually results in magnetite ores having lower ore grade (generally 20-30% Fe) than hematite ores, making it more costly to produce concentrate for steel smelters.
