Like many industries, mineral processing must constantly adapt to tackle changing conditions within the sector, whether it is the availability of resources or price and cost fluctuations.
High-grade reserves of minerals continue to be exploited, leading to depletion and an ongoing deterioration of raw materials quality. However, the level of demand and quality expectation for these minerals from customers remains on the rise.
As such, developments in techniques for mineral beneficiation have become increasingly important over the last few years, as businesses look to fully utilise the resources at their disposal and manufacture competitive products to international markets.
The iron ore industry is no exception, and this paper will explore the process of iron ore beneficiation and highlight the benefits and challenges faced by African countries in approaching this market segment. You can download the complimentary whitepaper here.
To learn more about the technical developments within the iron ore beneficiation sector, register now for the 4th Annual Fe Tech Conference 2013.
Held at Duxton Hotel in Perth on November 26 and 27, this leading forum features guest speakers from some of Australia’s biggest mining, exploration and research companies.
The event will cover a range of topics, including gaining the greatest value from the iron ore supply chain, the application of improved technologies and the streamlining of processes.
