The elemental and mineralogical composition of raw or blended iron ore plays an important role for the mining process but also the iron (blast furnace) and steelmaking operations. 

Exact knowledge about gangue mineral domains in the mine or during the different steps of the upgrading process make the beneficiation and downstream processing of low-grade high-volume iron ore deposits profitable.  

Malvern Panalytical solutions monitor the complete iron ore mining processes; from the direct analysis on the conveyor belt early in the process towards laboratory analysis and complete automated quality control.    

During the entire manufacturing process, from the iron ore to steel, Malvern Panalytical is the partner for exploration geologists and mine planners as well as for geometallurgists and quality managers.
