Global iron ore mining market and reserves dominated by Australia are followed by Brazil at 31Bnt (16.3%), Russia at 25Bnt (13.2%), China at 23Bnt (12.1%) and India at 8.1Bnt (4.3%) as of January 2015. In 2014, Australia was the largest producer of iron ore accounting for 36.1% of world production, followed by Brazil accounting for 20.2%, China (12.8%) and India (8.2%). Australia was the largest exporter of iron ores and concentrates (including roasted iron pyrites) in 2014, exporting 755.1Mt, followed by Brazil (344.4Mt), South Africa (67.2Mt), Ukraine (40.9Mt) and Canada (40.3Mt).

The Hamersley range, Pilbara region of Western Australia has rich deposits of hematite ore which normally contains 56-62% iron. Much of the hematite in the Pilbara is further categorized as direct shipping ore (DSO) because of its simplistic processing. In Brazil, iron ore is mainly extracted from hematite ores but can also be found in low grade itabirite ores which has iron content in the range of 35%-64%. Russian iron ore deposits are primarily located across the Ural region, Moscow and North West Russia. Chinese iron ore reserves are spread across the provinces of Liaoning, Sichuan, Hebei, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Shandong, Anhui, Hubei and Gansu.
