Metals continue to be important materials for construction, for example, studies of iron ore tailings (IOT) as raw material for manufacturing of Portland cement clinker, where the results showed that the raw meal containing IOT had higher reactivity and burnability than the raw meal containing clay, and the use of IOT did not affect the formation of characteristic mineralogical phases of Portland cement clinker, or studies concerned about physicochemical properties of concrete containing iron ore tailings in order to solve the shortage of natural sand and make full use of industrial waste.
