Iron ore:

The introduction of iron:

Iron is a chemical element in the periodic table with symbol Fe and atomic number 26 there. Metal Iron is group 8 and period 4 of the periodic table.

History of Iron Ore:

The first signs of use of iron dates back to the Sumerians and the Egyptians about 4000 BC iron recovered from meteorites, small tool, were such as the tips of spears and ornaments. From 2000 to 3000 BC, increasing numbers of smelted iron objects (lack of nickel distinguishes these products from meteoric iron), in Mesopotamia, Asia Minor and Egypt. However, it seems only a formality of iron and iron was an expensive metal more valuable than gold was considered.


Iron application most of any metal, and organize 95 percent of the metal’s production worldwide. Cheap and high resistance to its composition, its use, especially in cars, housing large ships and buildings is inevitable. The most famous steel cast iron. Iron oxide used for the production of magnetic storage in computers. They are often mixed with other compounds and their magnetic properties are maintained in solution.

Iron Type:

 1) Crude iron, which has a 5% -4% carbon, and varying amounts of contaminants such as sulfur, silicon and phosphorus and its importance is only an intermediate step on the way due to iron ore to iron and steel.

 2) Pig iron, including 5/3% -2% carbon and small amount of magnesium. Impurities such as sulfur and phosphorus in pig iron that negatively affect the properties of the cast iron are reduced to an acceptable level. The melting point of Pig iron is between 1470-1420 k that it is lower than both  the original composition and then heating it to  the molten product also makes carbon and  iron.Cast iron used, even white cast iron heat is  breaking objects.

 3) Carbon steel, includes 1/5% – 0/5% carbon and small amounts of manganese, sulfur, phosphorus and silicon.

 4) Soft iron (iron), has less than 0/5% carbon, and the product is strong and malleable, but not fusible as pig iron. Containing small amounts of carbon (a few tenths of a percent). If you have a sharp edge, it quickly loses its sharpness.

 5) Alloy steels contain varying amounts of carbon, as well as other metals such as chromium, vanadium, molybdenum, nickel, tungsten and …is.

Iron ore types:

In general, iron overload, due process magma and or skarn of basaltic magma, and the type of sediment accumulated in the sedimentary basins. In general, the types of ore deposits are as follows:

  •  – Iron ore deposit
  •  – ore iron Banded  layer (Banded Iron Formation) (BIF)
  •  – Iron ore, iron ore deposit type oolitic
  •  – ore deposits diffusive
  •  – lagoon sedimentary iron ore deposits, including coal layers
  •  – Magmatic mafic and ultramafic layered ore deposits
  •  – Skarn ore deposits
  •  – Ore deposits altered birth
  • – Ore deposit of volcanic – sedimentary
  •  – Volcanic ore deposits

common mineral iron ore:

Iron ore is one of the most abundant metallic element in the earth. Common inorganic minerals include iron ore hematite (Fe2O3) 70% iron, and magnetite (Fe3O4), 72% iron. The average grade of the iron mineralization in a 60 to 65 percent. As for the raw material can be referred to the following points:

The world’s largest iron ore mines are in Brazil, Australia, China, India, the United States and the United States.

The most important The iron ore trade (Kesler, 1994, Maynard, 1983):

Iron ore:

Iron is a metallic chemical element with the chemical symbol Fe that is very common in our planet. The iron is usually found in the form of magnetite (Fe3O4, 72.4% Fe), hematite (Fe2O3, 69.9% Fe), goethite (FeO(OH), 62.9% Fe), limonite (FeO(OH).n(H2O)) or siderite (FeCO3, 48.2% Fe). It has many uses in different industries. One of the iron major zones in our company is in Birjand. There is different Fe due to customer’s tendency.
