Iron ore magnetite processing (LIMS, MIMS, WHIMS, Davis Tubes)

The increased worldwide demand for steel in recent decades has led to an increase in the exploitation of magnetite iron ore deposits as an alternative to hematite DSO ores. Magnetite concentrate is a higher-grade product than hematite and very desirable as a smelter feed. However, the caveat for this superior product is the requirement for more complex, and higher cost, beneficiation circuits. Our expert magnetite team of metallurgists can work with you and your consultants to optimise existing magnetite beneficiation circuits or provide crucial data for feasibility studies, mine planning and marketing purposes.

Magnetic separation testwork services

In addition to the many generic testwork tasks and equipment such as sample preparation, chemical analysis, and grinding, the core principle of testing for magnetite ores is magnetic separation.

At the IOTC, ALS has an extensive range of magnetic separators suitable for all batch and most continuous scenarios, as follows:

Magnetic separation almost always occurs in conjunction with sample preparation or chemical analysis and beneficiation testwork.

Magnetic separation is a simple and robust separation process, but the application of different units and field strengths relative to ore types can be complicated. ALS can advise you on the best options for magnetite ore evalutation.
