Why Iron Ore?

Iron ores are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be economically extracted. The ores are usually rich in iron oxides.

Ores containing very high quantities of hematite or magnetite (greater than about 60% iron) are known as "natural ore", meaning they can be fed directly into iron-making blast furnaces. Iron ore is the raw material used to make pig iron, which is one of the main raw materials to make steel. 98% of mined iron ore is used to make steel.

It has been argued that iron ore is more integral to the global economy than any other commodity, except perhaps oil.

Uses of Iron Ore include:

  • Steel is the most widely used metal in modern life – iron ore is its main ingredient
  • Train tracks and other types of infrastructure
  • Construction and engineering
  • Medicine
  • Cosmetics
  • Paint
