A big iron ore mine from the north of Chile has hired Aminpro to carry out test work that will define the first geometallurgical model for iron ore in Chile.
The program considers over 7000 Davis tube tests, over 700 hardness tests such as Bond tests and SMC, and over 200 magnetic separation tests using a wet drum separator.
This project occurs amid the recent increase of the iron price, being nowadays around 170 USD/DMT, due to the projected high demand for steel by China for the next years. Moreover, projects like this bring opportunities not only for the iron ore mining industry but also for the exploitation of other elements and metals that tend to concentrate alongside iron ore, such as titanium, phosphorous and rare earth.
Aminpro has consolidated itself as an expert consultancy company in iron ore processing, adding to its vast experience in copper, molybdenum, gold, among other ores. If you need more information about our work, please contact us.
