The average grade of the ore is 58%. After magnetic separation processing, the iron content will rise to 62.5-64.5%.

The biggest problem that restricts the performance of the company is the transportation capacity, mainly due to the poor local infrastructure. The local freight is relatively high, and the railway fee is about $15/mt, and the road transportation fee is about $30/mt. The proportion of railway transportation is about 80%.

The company's book cash assets exceed 4.8 billion yuan. HBIS Resources intends to expand resource reserves and plans to acquire projects.
