- The study focused on the characterization of iron shale deposits from ikperejere area using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) with Energy Dispersive Spectrometer (EDS) and X-Ray Diffraction Studies (XRD). Studies using (ICPOES), shows the mineralogical and micro-structural analysis which allows the mineral phase identification, nature of iron containing minerals, and gangue minerals. Studies using SEM-EDS shows the micro-morphological and mineralogical compositions of the individual elements present in the sample. Studies using (XRD) shows the individual patterns of mineral phases contained in the ore. The characterization carried out on the shale using ICP-OES, SEM-EDS and XRD reveals a large content of Hematite, which when exploited can be very useful in the production of iron.
