Business Overview

Business Overview

Southern Alliance Mining Ltd (SAM) have been establish since year 2008. We are biggest iron ore mining company which located in Johor Darul Takzim,Malaysia. We have produced and sold more than 4.6 million tonnes of iron ore products, most of which were used in steel production, and the rest was sold as a highly-sought-after pipe-coating ingredient in the subsea business. Our established supporting infrastructure and facilities, and easy access to road networks to the ports have also been an important factor to retain long-term customers from both China and Malaysia.

What Is Iron Ore?
Iron ore is an important raw material for iron and steel production enterprises. After processing, we can get iron from natural minerals (iron ore), which is the mineral aggregates that contain iron or iron compounds and can be used economically.

How do We Process It?
Generally, the processing of iron ore needs several stages, including crushing, grinding, ore beneficiation, concentrating, drying, etc. The equipment for iron ore beneficiation consists of Jaw Crusher, Ball Mill,Classifier, Magnetic Separator, Flotation Machine, Concentrator Machine, and Dryer, and Equipped with Feeder, Elevator, and Conveyor, etc.

According to different extent form, classification of iron ore have hematite, limonite, magnetite, siderite, etc. According to different iron ore types, iron ore beneficiation processes mainly refer to magnetic separation, flotation separation, gravity separation, and magnetization roasting-magnetic separation.

Mining Aset Process

With great focus on iron ore mining activities, over the years, we’ve also gained the expertise to provide our counterparts in Malaysia with professional engineering works for mining machinery.
