Abstract:



Purpose.
Choice of a method for treating the iron ore of the Khanguet mine depending on its characterization.


Methodology.
This work is focused on the study on physicochemical and mineralogical characterization of the poor iron ore of Khanguet mine, using multiple analysis techniques (X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, scanning electron microscope and optical microscope), to identify the chemical composition and mineral phases of the ore. The study also focused on the possibility of enrichment, using the electrostatic separation process. For this purpose, two main parameters are studied, such as, the voltage between the electrodes and the rotation speed of the roll.


Findings
. The results of the characterization show the possibility of using the process of electrostatic separation for the enrichment of the Khanguet ore, which allows increasing the content of Fe2O3 up to 58.46%.


Originality.
The originality of this work is the possibility to use the electrostatic treatment process for the poor iron ore of the Khanguet iron mine.


Practical value.
This study shows that the results obtained by the process of electrostatic treatment of ore are very significant; this technique makes it possible to obtain a concentrate with an iron content of 58.46% and to bring an added value to the company and the steelmaking industry, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, to eliminate reserves of these poor iron ores stored near the mining site, which is harmful for the environment.



Keywords
