We are a mining company for extracting, processing and selling iron
ore from its deposits located in the southern coast of Peru
approximately 530 kilometers from Lima, in the Marcona district of
the province of Nasca, Ica region, from which we obtain high grade
concentrates for the manufacturing of our products.
The metallurgical mining complex of Shougang Hierro Peru SAA
includes 3 areas
approximately 150 km2, is the place where the exploration work is
carried out continuously and the exploitation of minerals under the
system of open pit, drill and shooting, that are then mineralized
rocks transported by dump trucks and shovels with a capacity of up
to 150 tonnes to crushers, where after the process of crushing the
iron ore is stacked and then transported to San Nicolas, by a
conveyor belt of approximately 15.3 kilometers long with a capacity
of 2000 tons per hour
is the beneficiation complex, where the minerals go through a series
of steps to become one of the products the company sells for which
in this area you may find the following facilities:
Crushing Plant: Where the iron ore is reduced by approximately
Magnetic Separation Plant: Here the mineral continues its
grinding and concentration through cyclones, magnetic separation
and flotation, separating the sterile mineral (not used in the
production process) of iron ore, which is then divided into two
types of products, a concentrate called High Grade Iron for
sintering and the other used to power the pelletizing plant,
after passing through a filtration process.
Filter Plant: At this stage the
thickening operations are performed, blending and filtering the
received magnetic pulp, leaving the mineral under conditions
suitable for processing into pellets.
Pellet plant: Where the iron ore is exposed to high temperatures
for processing and then to be stored and transferred to San
Nicola Pier, where it is transported around the world.
San Nicolas Pier: With an extension
of 330 mt approximately, with the capacity to receive vessels of
large tonnage, due to the depth of the water, besides being a
port with more than 8 international certifications, to give the
support and security to all our customers.
population of more than 16 000 people, here is where our mining camp
is located as well as the administrative offices, who are
responsible for monitoring and ensuring the efficient progress of
operations and work relations with employees, the community and the
areas of influence in general, making the presence of Shougang
Hierro Peru SAA in the Ica region an increasingly benefit to all.
