Comprehensive Report on Global Iron Ore Mining to 2020

Timetric's 'Global Iron Ore Mining to 2020' report comprehensively covers global reserves of iron ore and reserves by country. It also covers the historic and forecast data on global iron ore production, production by country, historic and forecast consumption and major exporting and importing countries.

The report also includes demand drivers affecting the global iron ore mining industry, world steel demand by region, profiles of major iron ore producing companies and information on the active, exploration and development projects by region.

Summary

Global iron ore reserves were 190 billion tonnes (Bnt) as of January 2015, with Australia accounting for the largest share at 53Bnt or 27.9% of the total, followed by Brazil at 31Bnt (16.3%), Russia at 25Bnt (13.2%), China at 23Bnt (12.1%) and India at 8.1Bnt (4.3%). 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.
