Currently there is no available Beneficiation (improving economic value of ore) solution for reducing Mn & Phos from Iron Ore. The lack of beneficiation process within the mine is resulting in poor ore quality and loss of iron extraction percentage.
When the ore is extracted from the mines it is not excavated in the purest form which can be processed. There will be resulting gangue minerals (Mn at 3%) along with the ore concentrate which needs to be refined. This process generates two by-products, which include high grade ore and waste streams. The beneficiation can be done either physically or chemically to attain the best quality output. Currently physical crushing and grinding is done for transportation purposes but not in the context of beneficiation. The main challenge is to remove the Mn & Phos from the Iron Ore with the help of beneficiation tech in Mine itself before it is sold to the end customers for Iron & Steel Making.
