  • Iron Ore

    Iron ore is the main raw material of iron and steel industry. The exploitation and utilization of a mine must be economic in order to benefit from it as an ore. The minimum blending grade of iron ores that are used in the steel industry must be 57% Fe.

    In Turkey, nearly 900 iron formations have been explored so far and 500 of them have been studied with the expectation of an economic operation. In our country, the iron ore reserves that can be used in the integrated iron and steel plants are located in Sivas-Erzincan-Malatya, Kayseri-Adana, Kırşehir-Kırıkkale-Ankara, and Balıkesir regions.
  • Chrome Ore

    Chrome ore is used in the Metallurgy, Chemistry, Refractory, and smelting industries. In these industries, there is no alternative that can replace the chromite ore.

    More than 90% of the globally produced chromite ore is used in metallurgy industry for ferrochrome (FeCr) production, while nearly 90% of ferrochrome (FeCr) is used in the stainless steel industry.

    The chrome ore that is extracted in our country is preferred by FeCr manufacturers thanks to its superior quality and this product is in demand in the markets. Although not its terms of the explored available reserve quantity, our country is one of the world’s leading chromite producers in terms of its quality.
