Srinivasa Rao, D and Rajalaxmi, M and Vasumathi, N and Bhima Rao, R (2010) Beneficiation studies on beach placer sample for steel making industries. Journal of Mining and Metallurgy Section A: Mining, 46 A . pp. 11-21.



Beneficiation studies were carried out on the Talashil beach placer sample of South Maharastra Coast, India. The sample contains magnetite, ilmenite, rutile, hematite, goethite and chromite as opaque minerals in the sample. The total heavy minerals fraction reaches 53.8 % by weight whereas the total magnetic minerals are 56.9%. It is observed that the 2nd stage DHIMS magnetic fraction contains 65.2 % Fe2O3 with an over all yield of 37.8 % and a 86 % recovery from a containing 26.8 % Fe2O3 feed. This product can be used in the pellet feed for steel making after suitable blending with high-grade iron ore fines.
