Compact Itabirite Project
New Steel is always alert to the demands of the sector; therefore in 2013 it started testing in a pilot scale a dry processing of a new type of iron ore called the compact itabirite. This new iron ore type is considered to be the new frontier of mining in Brazil and the world due to its gigantic unexplored reserves.
This technological evolution will allow the company to unlock hidden value in assets which are being underutilized. For this reason a new market has been open, solving the difficulty in licensing and economic viability.
