Global Iron Ore Mining to 2020

Summary

Global iron ore reserves were 185.1 billion tonnes (Bnt) as of January 2016, with Australia accounting for the largest share with 54Bnt or 29.2% of the total, followed by Russia with 25Bnt (13.5%), Brazil and China with 23Bnt each (12.4%), the US with 11.5Bnt (6.2%) and India with 8.1Bnt (4.4%).

In Australia, more than 90% of the total reserves are located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, with smaller amounts in South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania. Reserves of both hematite and magnetite ores are available with average Fe grade of 59.6%.

In Russia, the Ural region, Moscow (Tula region), North West Russia and Siberia have the country’s largest iron ore deposits. The best grade deposits are found in the Ural region, while the Tula region, also known as the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly (KMA), has reserves with average iron content in the range of 34-39%.
