Iron ore

Iron ore is one of the most abundant metallic elements on earth, and Iran is one of the richest countries in terms of mineral assets, with 68 kinds of minerals, placing it among the top 10 global mining powers. Iran is also the largest producer and exporter of iron ore in the Middle East. Common iron ore minerals include hematite (Fe2O3), which contains 70% iron, and magnetite (Fe3O4), which contains 72% iron. Magnetite is black in color and has magnetic properties, hence it’s called stone magnet. Hematite is also dark red or bright red, and its main usage is in iron extraction, with its powder being used in paint and stainless steel production. This group is able to supply and export both magnetite and hematite iron ore from the best and highest quality mines in bulk packaging.
