Mineralogical analysis of iron ore
In this data sheet we show a typical example of the fast and precise analysis of mineralogical ore compositions with Aeris.
The exploitation of new iron ore deposits of lower ore grade requires accurate and frequent monitoring of the mined material during mine planning and ore beneficiation. The presence of minerals such as clays, carbonates or silicates influence the properties and the grade of an iron ore.
Resolving the mineralogical composition of the mined material by X-ray diffraction (XRD) is essential for optimizing operational efficiency of the mining and the beneficiation process of iron ore.
