May 29, 2020 Iron Ore Nigeria currently has the 12th largest iron ore reserves in the world. There are over three billion tons of iron ore found in Kogi, Enugu, Niger, Zamfara and Kaduna States.
Nigeria started in 1958, while exploration of iron ore started in 1963, and by 1972, commercial quantities of iron ore was discovered at Itakpe. Other discoveries soon f ollowed.
Though Nigerias economy is highly dependent on oil as the main source of revenue, the country has over 50 natural resources deposited in commercial quantity across its 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory. These resources include limestone, gold, coal, gypsum, kaolin, sapphire, granite, copper, iron ore, sand, clay, laterite, and bitumen.
The country has the other primary ingredient, iron ore, in abundance. According to the mining roadmap, total reserves are estimated at over 10bn tonnes, although only 3bn tonnes have been proved, and Nigeria produces less than 100,000 tonnes per year. If it is to reach its potential, the segment needs to reorganise and define its priorities.

Given the attention of Nigerian policymakers to the sustenance of iron ore production in the national discourse on economic diversification. This write-up logically points out
Kogi Iron, an Australian company, is developing the project through its Nigerian subsidiary KCM Mining. The project includes the development of an iron ore mining and processing operation capable of producing five million tonnes Mt of upgraded iron ore concentrate per annum. The mine life is estimated to be 21 years.
For example, Nigeria is home to more than 3bn tonnes of iron ore, giving it the 12th-largest iron reserves in the world. It also has an estimated 42bn tonnes of bitumen reserves potentially the second-largest deposit in the world and approximately 10m tonnes
