Brief description The project aims to provide in-situ investigation of the behaviour and properties of non-ferrous fraction in iron ore during reduction. The results will allow industry to (1) improve the quality of the ?nal metallic iron product, (2) economically separate and recover high-value non-ferrous impurities in the iron ore, (3) reduce waste generated by ironmaking and (4) enable utilisation of, and add value to, iron ores that currently are not commercially viable due to their high impurity levels and low iron contents. The project will help expand the mining potential of the currently unviable iron ore deposits and enable industry to maintain the economic bene?ts from iron ore production in the years to come.
