Improving productivity to overcome natural factors such as decreasing ore grades, deeper deposits, and harder rock mass, combined with an increasing environmental and social awareness, has boost the industry to constantly work to enhance their processes along the whole value chain.
Because open-pit mining is employed for ore deposits at a substantial depth underground, it usually involves the creation of a pit that extends below the groundwater table. In this case, groundwater must be pumped out of the pit to allow mining to take place. A pit lake usually forms at some point in time after mining stops and
2.1.1 Mining of Crude Ore Iron ore is a mineral substance that, when heated in the presence of a reductant, yields metallic iron (Fe). It almost always consists of iron oxides, the primary forms of which are magnetite (Fe 3 O 4 iron content 72.4 percent), hematite (Fe 2 O 3 iron content 69.9 percent), and goethite (Fe 2 O 3 H 2
