MAGNETITE: A NATURAL HISTORY magzter

More than a half-billion tons of magnetite ore are currently mined worldwide each year as a source of iron. And geophysicists study magnetite grains in igneous rocks to learn about the ancient Earth’s magnetic fields and tectonic-plate movements. Magnetite (iron oxide, Fe 3 O4 ) consists by weight of 72.36 percent iron and 27.64 percent oxygen.

Magnetite: South Australia’s potential

2021-7-6  Magnetite ore has a prolonged history of use as a source of iron ore, in particular, in historically important iron and steel producing countries such as the USA, Canada, Russia, Sweden and China. Magnetite ores require varying degrees of processing and beneficiation to produce an iron ore suitable for steelmaking purposes, ultimately contributing to higher production costs.

Magnetite mineral Britannica

Magnetite, also called lodestone, or magnetic iron ore, iron oxide mineral (FeFe 2 O 4, or Fe 3 O 4) that is the chief member of one of the series of the spinel (q.v.) group. Minerals in this series form black to brownish, metallic, moderately hard octahedrons and masses in igneous and metamorphic rocks and in granite pegmatites, stony meteorites, and high-temperature sulfide veins.

2021-7-11  Due to its high iron content, magnetite has long been a major iron ore. It is reduced in blast furnaces to pig iron or sponge iron for conversion to steel. Magnetic recording [edit edit source] Audio recording using magnetic acetate tape was developed in the 1930s. The German magnetophon utilized magnetite powder as the recording medium.

Magnetite in sulphide ores Economic Geology

The literature of ore deposits indicates that magnetite occurs in a large number of sulphide deposits as an epigenetic mineral. Tabulation of 130 deposits or districts shows that the common sulphides, listed in order of number of occurrences, are: chalcopyrite, pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, arsenopyrite, bornite, and chalcocite.

Magnetite Geology Wiki Fandom

2021-7-11  Magnetite is a rock mineral and one of the main iron ores, with the chemical formula Fe3O4. It is one of the oxides of iron, and is ferrimagnetic; it is attracted to a magnet and can be magnetized to become a permanent magnet itself.56 It is the most magnetic of all the naturally-occurring minerals on Earth.57 Naturally-magnetized pieces of magnetite, called lodestone, will attract small
