2020521&ensp·&enspOpenpit, opencast or open cut mining is a surface mining technique of extracting rock or minerals from the earth by their removal from an open pit or borrow.. This form of mining differs from extractive methods that require tunnelling into the earth, such as long wall mining.Openpit mines are used when deposits of commercially useful ore or rocks are found near the surface.
2020517&ensp·&enspIron ores are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be economically extracted. The ores are usually rich in iron oxides and vary in color from dark grey, bright yellow, or deep purple to rusty red. The iron is usually found in the form of magnetite (Fe 3 O 4, 72.4% Fe), hematite (Fe 2 O 3, 69.9% Fe), goethite (FeO(OH), 62.9% Fe), limonite (FeO(OH)·n(H 2 O), 55% Fe) or siderite (FeCO
Iron ore extraction is mainly performed through open pit mining operations, resulting in significant tailings generation. The iron ore production system usually involves three stages: mining, processing and pelletizing activities. Of these, processing ensures that an adequate iron grade and chemistry is achieved prior to the pelletizing stage.

We know that not all Iron Ore deposits are the same and changing commodities prices are placing higher demands on producers to sweat the assets through process improvements, and increase revenues by converting tailings. Thats why understanding your project objectives and opportunities is

Starting from either openpit or underground mining and using a different relevant treatment method for oxide or sulphide copper mineral (ore). Having a quick look now at how porphyry ores are treated and the metals extracted. There are two main

All such plants are large tonnage operations treating up to 50,000 tons per day and ultimately requiring grinding as fine as minus 500
