Traditionally, the Australian Iron Ore industry has been based on the mining, production and export of high-grade hematite ores which currently account for the bulk of Australia's iron ore production.
High-grade hematite is often referred to as "Direct Shipping Ore" or "DSO" because it is mined and beneficiated using a relatively simple crushing and screening process before being exported for use in steel mills.
The following table summarises March 2014 Quarterly hematite mining and shipping activities:
