Method of Mining Iron Ore

Iron Ore is mined by a method called open cast method. The process is as follows:

  1. Explosives are used to remove the overburden rocks
  2. A powerful machine called a dragline is then used to pile the iron ore into a heap
  3. A monitor is then used to direct a powerful jet of water towards the heap
  4. The water washes the soil out through a series of sluice boxes
  5. The iron ore sinks to the bottom of the sluice boxes while the water carries the dirt away
  6. The iron concentrate now formed is later sent to the factory for smelting
