We look at the life indices of iron ore, the very long term forecast of iron and steel production and the conseq-uent demand for iron ore made on optimistic assumptions also show that the steel industry can remain comfortable with domestic iron ore supplies, however the life of high grade lumpy iron ore is not more than 10 years from now on. Value addition to the iron ore fines through various activities such as beneficiation, pelletization is the need of the hour which will generate economic activities as well as employment with in the country and will also be economically beneficial to the mining communities in the long run. I have done my project work in Metal Extraction and Forming division. This project is all about varying carbon percentage in iron ore pellets and study change in the physical properties like strength, porosity and bulk density etc. In this project it has been tried to optimize carbon percentage and curing temperature of the pellets for use in blast furnace.
