 en Predicting the Concentration Characteristics of Itakpe Iron Ore for cut-off Grade Estimation
IFEANYI, NWOSU JOSEPH; OKENGWU, KINGSLEY & ADESOJI, ALIMI

Abstract

Concentration characteristics of an ore are very critical to the estimation of cut-off grade of a deposit. A mathematical model that can lead to their quick prediction will significantly enhance ore reserve estimation, mine planning and the economy of the mining venture as a whole. In this paper attempts have been made to establish a functional relationship between ore grades and concentration characteristics of Itakpe Iron ore. The Wilcoxon signed rank test has been used to establish a significant level of correspondence between actual values and values obtained from the model. The model has shown that the performance characteristics of the processing plant and the grade of the ore both play vital roles in deciding the concentration characteristics of an ore. ©JASEM
