3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions for Iron Ore Mine Sites

Iron is the world's most commonly used metal, as a key ingredient of steel it represents almost 95% of all metal used each year. It is used primarily in structural engineering applications and in marine products, automobiles, and general industrial machinery. Mining iron ore is a high volume low margin business, as the value of iron is significantly lower than base metals. It is highly capital intensive, and requires significant investment in infrastructure such as rail in order to transport the ore from the mine to a freight ship.

3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions works with the worlds largest iron ore producers, protecting their workers and ensuring their operations are safe, efficient and sustainable.
