We produce iron ore for steel, aluminium for cars and smart phones, copper for wind turbines, diamonds that set the standard for responsible, titanium for household products and borates for crops that feed the world
The first known steel application dates as far back as 11th century BC, in Cyprus where archaeologists found material suggesting that steel knives were already being made. Four centuries later, the Greek historian Herodutus made reference to steel-inlaid bowls and, in the 3rd century BC, South Indian craftsmen were known to produce steel by smelting wrought iron with charcoal, using clay containers.
The Bessemer process to manufacture steel was developed by British inventor Henry Bessemer in the mid-1850s. In the middle of the twentieth century, the Bessemer process was refined into the Basic Oxygen Process that is still used today in blast furnaces.
Today, we produce five iron ore products in Western Australia including the Pilbara Blend, the worlds most recognised brand of iron ore used in steelworks as sinter plant feed or direct blast furnace feed.
Our Pilbara Blend products are the worlds most recognised brand of iron ore, and are known for their high-grade quality and consistency. Our Pilbara Blend products make up approximately 70% of our iron ore product portfolio. It is also the largest and most liquid iron in the market today, known as the US dollar of iron ore. Our higher grade ores also contribute to reducing GHG and other air emissions, which, along with its liquidity and consistent quality, makes our products the preferred iron ore for the steel industry in China.
Our iron ore operations in the Pilbaracomprise a world-class, integrated network of 16 iron ore mines, four independent port terminals, a 1,700-kilometre rail network and related infrastructure. Insights from data help us to explore and extract our iron ore efficiently. Our Operations Centre in Perth uses next-generation technologies, including artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, to run operations in real-time and respond quickly to changes. Our AutoHaul train system is the first fully autonomous, long-distance, heavy-haul rail network one of the worlds largest robots.
Since its first loaded run in July, we have safely and steadily increased the number of autonomous trips across our iron ore operations in Western Australia. AutoHaul have travelled more than1.6 million kilometres in 2018.
AutoHaul improves safety by reducing risk at level crossings and through its automated responses to speed restrictions and alarms. It also eliminates the need to transport drivers to and from trains mid-journey saving almost 1.5 million kilometres of road travel each year. It also improves cycle times by using information about the train and rail network topography to calculate and deliver a safe, consistent driving strategy.
In 2018, the Rio Tinto board approved $2.6 billion in funding for Gudai-Darri (Koodaideri), set to be our most technologically advanced mine, as well a high-quality, long-life, low-cost and expandable asset. For the very first time, we will leverage technology already in use across our business, such as autonomous trucks, trains and drills, and implement systems that connect all components of the mining value chain. And in 2019, we completed the first fully integrated paperless trade in iron ore. The whole process integrated intelligent contracts, electronic documents and a trade finance blockchain resulting in a faster, more streamlined transaction. Total transaction time was reduced from six days to 24 hours. This trade built on our first fully-digitised trade finance transaction completed in 2018. Each of these elements works together to deliver high-quality iron ore to our customers reliably and safely.
We will use fully integrated mine operation and simulation systems, such as digital twin technology. Pioneered by NASA, digital twins are virtual models of a physical environment like a space station that let you quickly test different situations. These twins combine data from actual processing plants with historical information about things like design and production. This gives our people in the field and at our remote operations centre the ability to access the same information and make decisions, based on real-time data, in seconds instead of hours or days. We can also safely test ways to increase production without breaking parts or disrupting operations.
Our Iron Ore Company of Canada(IOC) is a leading North American producer and exporter of premium iron ore pellets and high-grade concentrate. Our operations include a mine with five operational pits, a concentrator and a pelletising plant located near Labrador City, in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, in the region known as the Labrador Trough, an established basin with significant deposits for the supply of high-grade iron ore products. We also operate a wholly-owned railway that links our operations to our port facilities in Sept-les, Quebec.
Our IOC business targets niche, high-value segments of the seaborne iron ore market; our high-grade, low-impurity IOC products allow steelmakers to operate more productively and produce higher quality steels while meeting increasingly stringent environmental standards.
In 2019, we partnered with Chinas largest steel producer, China Baowu Steel Group, and Tsinghua University, one of Chinas most prestigious and influential universities, to work on a joint action plan supported by the China Iron Steel Association to explore ways to improve environmental performance across the steel value chain. We will combine our strengths on everything from research and development, technologies, processes, equipment, logistics, industry coordination and policy advisory capacities to bring together solutions to help address the steel industrys carbon footprint.
In 2021 we announced a partnership with Paul Wurth and SHS-Stahl-Holding-Saar (SHS) to explore the viability of transforming iron ore pellets into low-carbon hot briquetted iron, a low-carbon steel feedstock, using green hydrogen generated from hydro-electricity in Canada. The feasibility study is expected to be complete in late 2021, with an investment decision on a hydrogen based direct reduction plant at industrial scale expected to follow.
Our integrated operations, which include port facilities, ensure we can supply the right quality product to our customers, when they need it. We blend our products at our own ports, which allows us to produce a reliable and consistent product. And because we have dedicated shipping operations, we are able to better control the delivery of product to our customers.
Our mine plans are built to create value from our ore bodies and we use market signals to flex our production mix. We use real-time data analytics and artificial intelligence to respond quickly to market demand, and to help us anticipate future market conditions.

You can customize the keys via Settings menu Controls Toggle chat (and Lua console). When the console is open, you'll see a blinking cursor at the bottom of the screen; type your message or command and hit Return to send it (this will also close the console). Documentation about message and command prefixes can be found further down this page.
The console supports rich text tags. These tags are useful for sharing blueprints, marking map locations in chat or adding icons to map markers and train stations. Ctrl + Alt-clicking the map or ground will automatically insert a GPS tag and post it into the console. Shift-clicking most things with the console open will insert a tag for that thing into the console.
When the console is closed, only the most recent messages/commands will be displayed, but they will gradually fade away (opening the console will immediately re-display all recent messages). Note that by default, all executed commands are made visible to all users. The fade-out time can be changed via Settings menu Interface Chat message delay.
If much of the map is revealed, it increases the size of the save file. The following command cancels the generation of all chunks that are currently queued for generation and removes chunks outside a 32 chunks radius around 0,0. Note that this will remove player entities if there are any on these chunks.
0.5 is half speed, 1 is default, 2 is double speed, etc. Minimum is 0.01. This can be used for a lot of things like when you know you will have to wait for long periods of time for something to complete. Increasing will decrease performance, be careful.
This creates a new 1111 patch of resources, centered on the player character, where the ground is not water. The patch it creates is perfectly square but it randomizes the amount similar to natural generation, with fewer ore at the edges and more ore in the center. The default numbers result in a patch with 2500-3000 ore.
For solid resources like iron, destroys all resource entities and creates resource entities as in the original map generation. For fluid resources like oil, sets the yield of all existing resource entities to the original amount. Regenerates resources on the entire surface.
This allows to change the map generation settings for new chunks; it does not alter already generated chunks. Deleted chunks are affected by the setting change because they are newly generated when they get explored again.
To change resource generation settings, replace "iron-ore" with the resource that should be changed and replace "very-high" with the desired MapGenSize in the following command. Replace "iron-ore" with "enemy-base" to change the enemy base generation settings.
This will kill all biters, bases and worms. Anything that is an enemy will be completely destroyed. This only affects enemies in the explored world, so any unexplored parts of the map which still need to be generated will still have enemies. You can prevent biters being on newly generated chunks if desired.
This will kill all biters, bases and worms in a configurable radius. The default, 250 tiles, is about two zoomed-out screen widths on full HD. After destruction, it shows how many objects were destroyed.
Enabling peaceful mode prevents biter attacks until provoked. Substitute true for false to disable. Already existing biters are not affected by this command so attacks could continue for a while after activating peaceful mode.
On newly generated chunks no biters will be present, however all current biters will remain unaffected. Equivalent of setting the Enemy Base Size to None under the Terrain settings during map generation but achieved mid game by changing map generation settings.
Copper is a major metal and an essential element used by man. It is found in ore deposits around the world. It is also the oldest metal known to man and was first discovered and used about 10,000 years ago.
Copper mineral is widespread all over the world, large copper deposits are found in Chile, United States, Mexico, Indonesia, Peru, Sweden etc. According to globally developing trends, copper is a main and prominent source of energy.
Currently, most of the available copper appears to be distributed over large areas, mixed with mineralizedmaterials and rock.There are a great number of compounds that contain copper, which are mainly classified in two groups: These are the porphyry deposits, which could only be exploited when metallurgical skills to separate and recover the metal were developed.
Due to its importance in human life, copper production technology has been highly developed. There are several different technics involved in copper production process. Mainly copper goes through different stages and degrees of refinement, to a lesser extent the byproducts such as molybdenum, sulfuric acid and precious metals that come with copper in the ore. Following are main stages in copper production process, after these processing operations, copper concentrates will be obtained.
Crushing is the first size reduction stage in copper production operation; it aims to reduce the large lumps of raw materials into small particles preparing for further operation. Large raw copper ore are fed to the jaw crusher evenly and gradually by vibrating feeder through a hopper for primary crushing. After primary crushing, the material will transferred to cone crusher by belt conveyor for secondary crushing; the crushed copper ore stone will then transferred to vibrating screen for separating.
After separating, the parts that can meet standard will be transferred away as final products, while the other parts will be returned to cone crusher, thus forming a closed circuit. Size of final products can be combined and graded according to your specific requirement. SBM is specialized in manufacture crushing machine. We provide various types of quarry and processing crushing plant for sale.
With this degree of hardness, it was necessary to restructure the crushing stage to reduce the top size of feed material to the grinding process, and increase the treatment flow of the plant. Two alternatives copper ore crushing production line were proposed and tested on the plant site. These were:
Primary gyratory crusher, secondary impact crusher, tertiary cone crusher, vibrating screen etc. Primary jaw crusher, secondary cone crusher, tertiary VSI crusher, belt conveyor, vibrating screen etc.
In copper processing operation, many copper crushing processes are operated by mobile crusher machine. The innovative design of mobile copper crusher machine offers owners the highest possible fatigue strength, truly mobility and flexibility, excellent reliability and numerous mounting possibilities.
Due to its hardness, the copper ore may require as much as a tertiary crushing.Jaw crusher, impact crusher, or gyratory crushers are usually used for initial reduction. The primary crushed stone that is too large to pass through the top deck of the vibrating screen is processed in the secondary crusher, such as impact crusher or cone crusher. Tertiary crushing is usually performed using cone crushers or other types of impact crushers.Copper crushing requires high quality crusher machine for producing even particle size. Some crushing operation will apply VSI crusher for copper processing.
Its fully-enclosed layout features high integration. It integrates the functions of high-efficiency sand making, particle shape optimization, filler content control, gradation control, water content control, and environmental protection into a single syst

Iran is such a country who is rich with mineral resources and the proved mineral materials are more than 60. Besides the world-famous oil and gas resources, it mainly includes gold ore, copper ore, zinc ore, lead ore, chromium ore, iron ore, coal, tin ore, manganese ore, aluminum ore, nickel, magnesium, phosphorus, antimony, tungsten and iron oxide, etc. All these mineral materials are abundant and the metal grade of some is very high. These materials have the very high exploitation value. Iran has very rich copper resources and it has been proven with about 3 billion tons and the average grade is 0.8%. The copper ore accounts for 5% of the world's total reserves, and it is in the third in the world. Iran's coal reserves are about 7.6 billion tons.
For abundant mineral materials, it is very important to have the mining processing production line in Iran. There are lots of miners to choose suitable ore mining production line. Mineral mining production line can be divided into the following steps: excavation, primary crushing, secondary crushing, tertiary crushing, grinding line, beneficiation production line.
The excavation step mainly refers to the raw materials got from mineral mountains. Through exploding, the raw mineral materials will be got from the various kinds of Ore Mountains. Primary crushing usually include jaw crusher to process the mined materials into particles. With jaw crusher, the ore materials will be processed into small size. Jaw crusher is the recognized as the first step crushing machine. Cone crusher or impact crusher will be used in the second crushing production step. For production needs, the primary crushed materials do not satisfy clients' requirements. It needs cone crusher to process the crushed ones. SBM cone crusher will break the materials into further fine size. Tertiary crushing stage is not necessary. Some clients will need ultrafine size materials and at this time, the tertiary crushing stage will play great role. Impact crusher sometimes will be used as the tertiary crushing machine.
There is a principle for ore mining site more crushing, less grinding". Through the above crushing stages, the materials will be processed into small size. Grinding stage will break the crushed materials into fine powder for the next production line application. Less grinding stage will reduce the operation costs and help clients to get much more profits.
Beneficiation production line refers to the clean stage. The broken materials have much undesired things and it needs to separate these unnecessary materials. The general beneficiation production line includes separation and washing. Magnetic separator and sand washing machine belongs to the main beneficiation equipment. SBM has produced all kinds of beneficiation machines for this production stage.
SBM mobile copper ore jaw crusher plant will process copper ore with a nominal capacity of 800 tons per hour. The complete mobile system weighs over 500 tons, though can be moved easily along the mine face. For the special climate conditions in Iran, the whole mobile system is electric driven. The operation temperatures at the mine site vary from +35 C to -35 C.
At the new open-pit mining site, the blasted copper ore is fed using SBM YG series mobile apron feeder to the mobile jaw plant, and then conveyed using mobile belt conveying system, and track-mounted stacker to the mines conveyor network. The loading height of the tracked mobile apron feeder is 6 meters, and it has a feed hopper volume of 24 cubic meters. The mobile jaw plant can crush ore feed lumps up to 1.2 meters in size.
