high grade ore versus low grade ore

  • High

    High-grade iron ore premium set to fall with coking coal prices. Report summary. High coking coal prices have incentivised Chinese steel producers to purchase more high-grade iron ore fines. As a result, the price gap between high-grade and low-grade fines has widened to a four year high.

  • What is a low grade ore?

    Low-grade ores are less valuable than higher-grade ones. Also, recovery rates for low grade ores tend to be lower than for high grade ores - that is, a lower percentage of the total amount of metal in the ore is extracted successfully. The definition of low-grade depends on the resource in question. For copper, low grade ores have less than 1%

  • Ore

    The ore grade, or concentration of an ore mineral or metal, as well as its form of occurrence, will directly affect the costs associated with mining the ore. The cost of extraction must thus be weighed against the metal value contained in the rock to determine what ore can be processed and what ore is of too low a grade to be worth mining.
