Lecture 4 Mining waste SGU

Iron ores generally have higher grades than sulphide or gold ores, often going over 50 per cent or more. Less tailings are therefore generally produced in iron ore projects. After separating the valuable minerals, the tailings are often pumped in a slurry through pipes to be deposited in a tailings storage facility (TSF) (also called tailings management facility, TMF).

Iron ore as a main dry cargo OpenSea

Iron ore from Brazil is exported to China, Japan, South Korea and North Europe in almost all cases with capesize bulkers. One of the major iron ore routes and the most famous one is the Tubarao (Brazil) to Qingdao (China) which is taking place with capesize bulk carriers and its performance does have a high effect on the Capesize Index.

Environmental Strategies in the Mining Industry One

During mining, metal-bearing rock called ore is extracted from underground or surface mines. Metal concentrations in ore vary greatly, from less than 1 percent by weight for most gold deposits to over 60 percent for some iron ore deposits; most metallic mineral deposits have ore grades in the range of 15 percent by weight.

Iron ore BHP

The world will need iron ore for as long as the world needs steel. In 2020, we produced around 280 million tonnes of iron ore. That's enough to make the steel for more than 3,300 Sydney Harbour Bridges. We're building a new iron ore mine in Western Australia. When completed, South Flank will produce high-quality iron ore for around 25 years.

Magnetite South Australia's potential

Magnetite ores require varying degrees of processing and beneficiation to produce an iron ore suitable for steelmaking purposes, ultimately contributing to higher production costs. Magnetite concentrates typically range between 65 to 70% Fe and are increasingly being sought as a preferred feedstock for steelmaking, particularly those concentrates with low impurities.

Mining Underground mining Britannica

Mining Mining Underground mining When any ore body lies a considerable distance below the surface, the amount of waste that has to be removed in order to uncover the ore through surface mining becomes prohibitive, and underground techniques must be considered. Counting against underground mining are the costs, which, for each ton of material mined, are much higher underground than on the
