-you are here : iron mining and processes -.
Mining iron ore is a high volume low margin business, as the value of iron is significantly lower than base metals It is To convert it to metallic iron it must be smelted or sent through a direct reduction process to remove the oxygen Oxygen iron bonds are strong, and to remove the iron from the oxygen, a stronger elemental bond must be presented
Iron ore is converted into various types of iron through several processes The most common process is the use of a blast furnace to produce pig iron which is about 92 94 iron and 3 5 carbon with smaller amounts of other elements Pig iron has only limited uses, and most of this iron goes on to a steel mill where it is converted into various
The process of mining consists of discovery of an iron ore deposit through extraction of iron ore and finally to returning the land to its natural state It consists of several distinct steps The first is discovery of the iron ore deposit which is carried out through prospecting or exploration to find and then define the extent, location and
The overwhelming dependency on iron for military purposes spurred iron production and extraction processes The process of mining from discovery of an ore body through extraction of minerals and finally to returning the land to its natural state consists of several distinct steps The first is discovery of the ore body, which is carried out
Up to now, with 500 mine EPC projects, 70 kinds of ores mining technologies and experience and 20 patents, Xinhai has established overseas offices in Sudan, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Peru and Indonesia and exported to more than 20 countries.
