Where is iron ore found?
How is iron ore mined ?
- First, we explore the geology of the region to find the best iron ore prospects for our operations.
- Once the ideal site has been chosen, the ore is drilled and blasted.
- It is then transported to the primary crusher for processing.
- The crushed ore is sorted over screens and resized to different specifications, such as lump and fines products.
- Once the iron ore is processed, a stacker builds a stockpile in the stockyards.
- When ready for transportation, a reclaimer picks up the ore from the stockpiles and conveys it to train load out facilities.
- Trains transport the iron ore to ports.
- The iron ore is then loaded on to ships at our port facilities and exported to our customers around the world.
