Geology, Prospecting and Exploration for Iron Ore Deposits

2015. 4. 9.  Geology, Prospecting and Exploration for Iron Ore Deposits. Iron has been known since antiquity. Iron is ubiquitous in the lithosphere as either a major constituent or in trace amounts. In abundance it ranks fourth behind oxygen, silicon and aluminum. Iron ores have a wide range of formation in geologic time as well as a wide geographic distribution.

Application of the gravity method to iron ore exploration

The gravity method was first applied to Fe ore exploration as a tool for detecting nonmagnetic ores, but advantages of this method over other exploration methods have also made it useful under certain geological conditions in the study of magnetic ores and regional structures favorable for the occurrence of Fe ore. However, the gravity method is restricted by several limitations that must be realized and understood if the application of the method

Magnetic Prospecting of Iron Ore Deposits App - COMSOL

Magnetic prospecting is a geological exploration method that is applicable to certain types of iron ore deposits, in particular those made up of magnetite and hematite. The method consists of measuring the magnetic anomalies (changes in the earth's magnetic field) due to the presence of magnetic ores.

2014. 3. 14.  The most predominant surface mining methods used for mining of iron ores are open pit mining methods and open cut mining methods. However a few underground iron ore mines are also in operation around the globe. The decision for employing surface mining or underground mining is dependent on the proximity of the ore body to the surface. Open pit and open cut mining are the least

(PDF) GEOPHYSICAL TECHNIQUES AND THEIR

Historically, geophysical technique (magnetic) was first used in Sweden in the 17th century for prospecting iron ore (Reedman, 1979). Geophysical techniques gained more acceptability in the early 1923 (Gupter, 1986) because of exploration for crude oil. Relevance of Geophysics across the world is as a result of oil and solid mineral exploration.
