(pdf) Kenyan Iron Ore: Mining And Prospects Of Processing
Oct 19, 2017 The iron ore market is enjoying its golden period with the current iron ore prices bagging a tidy profit for its suppliers. A vast majority of iron extracted from iron ore is used in the production of steel which, in turn, is used in the manufacturing of buildings, automobiles, ships, furniture, locomotives, and consumer products.There is fragmentary knowledge of iron ore sources exploited in the past for many regions including the Southern Levant. This missing information has the potential to shed light on political, economic, craft production, and trading patterns of past societies. This paper presents the results of smelting experiments performed in graphite crucibles and a muffle furnace, using 14 iron ore samples.
