Characterization of a mineral ore is a very important step to perform before any processing takes place whereby Kenya has ample iron ore deposits which are yet to be fully exploited and
2015-4-1 Most of the minerals found in Kenya still remain unexploited due to inadequate knowledge on their status, economic viability and requisite mining technologies. Importing metallic products such as lead, iron, zinc, copper etc. from other countries are very expensive despite Kenya’s potential to exploit existing mineral resources. This study aimed at characterizing the selected mineral ore
Kenyan Iron Ore: Mining and prospects of processing Prof. S M. Maranga* and Alvin Kiprono Bett* and Kyalo Ndeto* and Gilbert Bett** *Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Department of Mechanical Engineering) **Wanjala Mines Abstract Industrialization is one of the economic pillars in the Kenya Vision 2030 thus iron and steel will be prominent in the industrialization process.
This project focuses on the geochemical characterization of the iron ore deposits of Ikutha area of Kitui County, which lies in the Mozambique mobile belt. The Ikutha iron ore deposits are situated about 250 Km to the south east of Nairobi. The deposits consist of apatite bearing magnetite veins and mineralized country rock.
