colour from dark grey, rusty red, bright yellow etc .

There are two common types of iron ore in Nigeria; Hematite and magnetite. Hematite contains more iron content than magnetite. Magnetite ore most distinctive property is its magnetism. It is the most magnetic mineral in the world. The products from magnetite ore are of higher quality than Hematite, making it the premium quality that can be sold to steel makers. Almost all iron ores are used in blast furnace to make pig iron which is the main material in steelmaking. There are other applicable uses of iron ore in cement, paints, foundry etc

We are presently involved in the extraction of magnetite in Kaduna state (northern part of Nigeria). The iron content in the ore is over 56%, with a specific gravity of 4.3

We are also having interest in some mining sites in two other states namely; Zamfara[60%iron] and Kogi [58% iron] state.
