Our plant extracts iron ore from the sand by using two processes:
The first process is a dry separation process. Trucks of sand are poured into a separator that employs 19 magnets.
The magnets separate the sand from the iron ore. About 35 trucks of sand are used to distill to one truck of better quality ore. We work on an area with reserves of over 3 million tons of iron ore. In one day we currently process over 30,000 tons of sand through the dry separators.
The ore is then processed in a wet separator, which uses recycled water to wash the sand we get from the dry separator. Approximately, for every two trucks of ore, we get the final product: 65- 67% grade iron ore.
