Hematite and Itabirite - Sundance Resources Limited

Itabirite mineralisation is a metamorphosed iron formation composed of iron oxides (hematite, magnetite, martite), abundant quartz, very rarely mica and other accessory minerals. Brazil’s itabirite deposits range in scale from 1 to 4 billion tonnes, with average grades of between 37% Fe and 52% Fe.

Itabirite Article about Itabirite by The Free Dictionary

itabirite. A laminated, metamorphosed, oxide-facies iron formation in which the original chert or jasper bands have been recrystallized into megascopically distinguished grains of quartz and in which the iron is present as thin layers of hematite, magnetite, or martite.

Grinding of Itabirite Iron Ore in Autogenous and Semi ...

The Brazilian iron ore resources are shifting from high grade ores with good liberation at coarse sizes, to lower grade ores with good liberation only at finer sizes, requiring grinding down to a fine size to liberate and concentrate. Considering the very large throughputs required in the plants it is important to ensure the long-term economic and energy feasibility of this process.
