There are several types of iron ore. The most commonly mined type is Hematite, particularly in Brazil, China and Australia, where it makes up 96% of all exports. The ore itself is a deep, brownish red colour which is where the name comes from (Haima is the Greek word for blood) and has a chemical formula of Fe2O3 and is also known as Ferric Oxide.
Australia's iron ore reserves and resources are in both hematite and magnetite ores. Because of the high average grades (% Fe) of hematite ores when compared to the average grades for magnetite ores, it is necessary to report national resources in terms of contained iron.
