CMGB Found Tens of Billions of Iron Ore

China Metallurgical Geology Bureau summoned a seminar upon technologies of geologically exploring iron ore in east Hebei Province. Sun Shu, Li Tingdong, Zhao Pengda, Zhai Yusheng, Pei Rongfu, Mo Xuanxue and other academicians, Zhang Hongtao, Chief Geologist of Ministry of Land and Resource MLR, and other experts and leaders from State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, Ministry of Finance, MLR, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China University of Geosciences Beijiing, Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences and National Natural Science Foundation of China attended the seminar.

Yan Xueyi, Director of CMGB, says that under the circumstances that 50% of China''''s iron ore is imported and related negotiations are weathering a predicament, the discovery of the iron ore in east Hebei is conducive to easing China''''s strained supply of iron ore and promoting a sustainable and healthy development of China''''s iron and steel industry.

Chen Junfeng, Chief Engineer of the No. 1 Geo-exploration Academy of NO. 1 Bureau of CMGB, Luo Huabao, Chief Geologist of CMGB, Wang Yongji, Professional Explorer of Iron Ore of CMGB, respectively introduced the outcomes of the iron ore in east Hebei, expounded on its metallogenic model and predicted the potential of iron ore exploration in the wake of a review of CMGB''''s sixty-year iron ore exploration.

East Hebei is a significant metallogenic zone for CMGB. After entering the 21st century, CMGB has stepped up its efforts in exploring in this area in order to loose the restrictions of short iron ore upon China''''s national economy and achieved prominent fruits such as discovering iron ores at Yanzhuang, Changyu, Macheng, Changning and other villages.

Among them, Yanzhuang iron ore at Changli County, Hebei Province unearthed in 2003-2004 contributes a total of 95 million tons and 120 million tons of ore potential.

In 2006-2007, a survey revealed 125 million tons of iron ore at Changyu Village, Luanxian County, in Hebei. The No. 1 Geo-exploration Academy launched an investigation of iron ore at Macheng and finished field work in 2008. August in the same year witnessed the one-time adoption of the detailed survey by the examination board, which rendered 1.044 million tons of iron ore and over 1.5 million tons of potential reserve at Macheng. This ore is a shallowly buried, easily mined mega iron ore deposit, largest amidst single ore deposits with proved reserve since the 1980s. On other fronts, the Academy is now engaged in iron ore survey at Luanxian County with a predicted reserve of 500 million tons.

According to the outcomes in this area and particularly the breakthrough analysis of Macheng mega iron ore, east Hebei will have a potential of 10 billion tons and is very likely to become a potential region for producing iron ore. This will definitely alleviate the status quo of domestic short iron supply and enhance the sustainable healthy development of China''''s iron and steel industry.

Attending academicians and experts lively discussed the wide issues of exploring iron ore in east Hebei. They unanimously concluded that metamorphic sedimentary iron ore is of great potential in China. This area has already been verified with nearly 6 billion tons of iron ore. They were very positive towards the tens of millions of iron ore in this area and, meanwhile, stressed the need of researching the regional geological structure and metallogenic environment. They said that deep-ore-finding efforts should be carried out to look for buried ores and buried ore belt. It was believed that endeavors should be made to strengthen researching metallogenic basic theory, ore-bearing layer and marking layer, integrate production, learning and research, and prioritize the indicative role of ancient stratigraphy upon the early evolution of earth. Academicians and experts pointed out that looking for rich ores still remains a priority in exploration and should be enhanced in iron ore exploration in east Hebei.

Zhang Hongtao pointed out that looking for large-scale ores and especially rich ores like Anshan iron ore will be a top priority on the MLR''''s ''12th Five Year Plan'' and conduct a comprehensive research for the second time. He suggested that CMGB deepen its research in order to guide mine searching in the following practice.

As the ''national team'' of solid ore exploration, CMGB has set as its overall goal submitting 1 to 2 billion tons of iron ore to the nation. At present, this goal has been primarily achieved.

Ju Yitai, Deputy Director of CMGB, presided over the seminar. Heads of CMGB, No. 1 Bureau, Geological Exploration Academy, Institute of Mineral Resources Research and other related units also attended the meeting. Xinhua News Agency, People''''s Daily, Economic Daily, Science and Technology Daily, China Mining Daily, Geological Exploration Newspaper and Energy came to report the seminar.
