Iron Ore Geoscience Australia

2021-8-12  Pure mineral hematite contains 69.9% iron. It has been the dominant iron ore mined in Australia since the early 1960s and approximately 96% of Australia's iron ore exports are high-grade hematite, most of which has been mined from deposits in the Hamersley province in Western Australia.

2018-12-31  In 2018, Australia's EDR of iron ore increased by 3% from 2017 to 49 604 Mt (Table 3). Similarly, there was a 4% EDR increase of contained iron to 24 122 Mt (Table 4). EDR attributable to magnetite deposits have decreased by 1%, likely due to re-assessment of projects and inactivity in the magnetite industry.
