magnetite ore, magnetite iron ore, iron ore mining process

Coal washing using magnetite is used to remove contamination from run-of-mine (ROM) coal, which usually contains rocks, middlings, used consumables and other contamination introduced by the mining process.

Magnetite ore is a ferromagnetic material, with the chemical formula Fe3O4, and is one of several types of iron oxide. It is a ubiquitous mineral in many parts of the world, including Australia, the USA, Canada, South Africa, Mozambique and many other countries across most of the world's continents.

Magnetite ore often occurs in metamorphic rocks, which formed from ferruginous sediments in both regional and contact metamorphic settings. It is commonly formed by the reduction of hematite and ferric hydroxide minerals in these rocks. Banded Precambrian iron formations commonly contain magnetite ore.

Magnetite is characteristically recognised by its strong magnetism, colour and streak. It is commonly used in magnetic separation and coal washing. However, it is not limited to these purposes, as its abundance and magnetic properties means has been used in the production of audio tape, and now more commonly in computer information storage media.
