Abstract: hydroxides like goethite and limonite. Small amounts are found as the carbonates in siderite, as sulphides in pyrites and as silicates in chamosite and greenalite. Broadly iron ores may be grouped as: direct shipping ore generally better than 60 per cent iron (Fe), which is mined and used in blast furnaces requiring only simple preparation and beneficiable ore which contain as little as 25 percent Fe and can be upgraded to around 60 percent Fe by magnetic or heavy media separation. Lump ores are naturally mined ores that are crushed and screened to a certain grain size before their use. However, as a result of preparation and enrichment processes in the iron ore mines to increase the Fe content, very fine-grained ores increasingly accumulate which have to undergo agglomeration. This is done by means of sintering and pelletizing. The physical and metallurgical characteristics of the ores are as important as chemical properties. The steel industry requires iron ore which is high i...
