Chairman of the board of IMIDRO invited the region countries to collaborate in mineral processing research projects.
During the First International Mineral Processing Activists Symposium (IMPAS 2016) &3rd Workshop of Iron Ore and Base Metals Processing (ECO Experts), Mehadi Karbasian expressed that IMPRC (located in Karaj) is capable of providing high quality services up to international standards to mining and mining industries companies in Iran and the region and is able to play a crucial role in mining companies’ success.
IMPRC is trying its best to improve quality of its services. In pursuing developing techno-economical collaboration and alliance with neighboring and the region countries, IMIDRO is hosting the third Iron and Base Metals and Mineral Processing Workshop for the ECO member states experts in IMPRC, he added.
Greater use of hydrogen, fuel cells and nuclear energy means increasing demand on metal catalysts and in this situation rare earth elements play a key role in clean technologies and are likely to experience significantly higher demand Karbasian continued.
IMPRC is trying to boost its experience and know-how by strengthens its cooperation with worldwide mineral processing companies and R&D’s for acquiring new processing technologies and useful experiences in this sector, he said.

As per the recent data released by NBS (National Bureau of Statistics), Chinese crude steel output records new high in May’19 at 89.09 MnT.
The two key raw material for steel production, Iron Ore and Scrap prices are moving in opposite directions. The Vale disaster at the Brumadinho tailing dam in late January this year has led to a cut in iron ore supplies, and a spike in spot prices making them to hit five years high, leaving no margins for blast furnaces.
Brazil’s Vale which needs court approval to resume production at its Brucutu mine after a deadly dam collapse, told analysts it expects to do so soon, analysts at brokerage XP said on Thursday after meeting with the miner’s top executives.
According to General Administration of Customs, China - the world's largest iron ore consumer and importer, recorded 4% rise in iron ore imports to 83.75 MnT in May'19 against hitting 18 months low in Apr'19 at 80.77 MnT.
World's second largest exporter of iron ore - Brazil has recorded iron ore export volumes at 29.02 MnT in May'19, up 58% as compared to Apr'19 exports at 18.34 MnT, according to trade statistics released by Brazil customs. On yearly basis, exports dropped 16% as compared to 34.62 MnT in May'18.

On yearly basis, iron ore export increased significantly as against 0.79 MnT in the month of May'18. Iron ore exports from India have climbed to 13-months high as similar level of exports was last seen in Mar'18 at 2.63 MnT.
