Prabhakar, S (2011) Column Flotation for the Beneficiation of Iron Ore Fines. In: International Conference on Iron and Steel Industry : Emerging Trends (Steelrise 2011), Feb. 1-2. 2011, National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.



Iron ore is more integral to the global economy than any other commodity" perhaps except oil. Indian iron ore industry is one of the world's largest and growing at a rapid pace. Optimum utilization of iron ore resources have become a national priority. As per the recent national steel policy, our country will be producing about 110 millions tons of steel per annum by 2020 requiring around 42 million tons of iron ore. The iron ore exports are projected to a level of 114 million tones and it amounts to total production of 300 million tons by 2020. In the present steel boom, many global steel producers have projects in states of Chattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka and Orissa. Research on utilization of low grade iron ore to produce quality raw material would play a key role in future which is a fact acknowledged by the iron and steel industry.
