Banded iron formations are known as taconite within North America. The mining involves moving tremendous amounts of ore and waste. The waste comes in two forms, non-ore bedrock in the mine overburden or interburden locally known as mullock), and unwanted minerals which are an intrinsic part of the ore rock itself . The mullock is mined and piled in waste dumps, and the gangue is separated

Today iron ore agglomeration is the largest tonnage application for sintering, with plants operating at up 20,000 metric tonnes per day. For example, Figure 2.14 is a picture of a modern agglomeration facility which incorporates off-gas capture to reduce environmental damage. In such a facility, the iron ore fines are mixed with fluxes, carbon fuel, and water.
Iron ore pellets are spherical shaped agglomerates with iron (Fe) content ranging from 64% to 72% and are manufactured in a specialized pellet plant. These products are gaining considerable attention among steelmakers owing to their key advantage of being highly productive as compared to lumps or fines. The iron ore pellets market share will largely be affected by the increasing steel usage in
