The second wave then took place in the sector, when Vale began processing the friable itabirite
ore, with 40% to 60% Fe content.
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%.
He has extensive international experience in iron ore operational design, including plant designs for the Zanaga project in Republic of Congo, MMX and Ponte Verde Itabirite
in Brazil, the Lomonosovskoye project in Kazakhstan, the Shymanivske project in the Ukraine and iron ore operations in Chile.
Anglo American will continue to upgrade the confidence in the Compact Itabirite
Indicated Mineral Resource through further drilling and will work to increase the Ore Reserves through conversion of these resources.
The Bopolu licence contains two sub-parallel itabirite
ore bodies, following the interpretation of remote sensing data, geological maps and historical geological data.

The first optimising control system ever installed in a Brazilian concentrator was fully commissioned last March at CVRD's Timbopeba mine to optimise the grinding of a mix of itabirite
and hematite ore;
Samarco mines relatively low-grade itabirite
iron ore in the State of Minas Gerais in southeastern Brazil.
3 billion of itabirite
hematite at 28% iron at Mbalam and 1.
Sundance will then proceed with development and production of the Itabirite
Concentration of iron ores such as itabirite
, hematite, goethite and limonite;
38 billion tonnes of Itabirite
at 38 per cent Fe at Mbarga in Cameroon, and we also recently announced that Sundance plans to grow that further through more drilling in 2012.
