Iron ores are rocks that contain metallic iron that can be extracted from them. They are found mostly in sedimentary rocks but also occur in metamorphic and igneous rocks. The most common types of iron ores are magnetite and hematite. Iron ore is the main proponent of steel, which has many uses and makes up most of the metal used by the world annually.
Africa’s top three producers of iron ore are South Africa, Algeria, and Mauritania, but many countries in Africa possess iron ores; however, most of these are yet to start iron ore production.
The iron ore mining industry has positions for highly skilled locals, Diaspora, and expatriates in various African countries. Visit the Mining Recruitment Africa Jobs portal to view recent iron ore mining jobs in Africa.
