Pig Iron Project
Through GRI, MMI's main initiative is planning to produce merchant pig iron (MPI) by reducing iron oxide pellets in a gas-based direct reduction module and smelting the resulting direct reduced iron (DRI) in an electric arc furnace (EAF).
Mineral Sands Project
MMI's other other main focus, also through GRI, is on assessing the minerals sands deposit in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL, Canada. The minerals sands are rich in iron ore, feldspar, garnet, zircon and silica quartz.
