The investigation of iron using off-line energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence, in iron ore dressing process, is presented. Techniques have been developed to determine the quality control of grinding homogenization, separation, classification processes and residue material in dry basis of iron deposit. The laboratory trials on a wide variety of iron ores indicated that the range of ore grades is from 28-40% Fe and maximum value is to be found 70% Fe for processed ore. The results obtained increased the knowledge and performance of the dressing process which is of basic importance for its improvement and future automation.
