This discrepancy may be ascribed to the structural complexity of this mineral which leads to the crystallization of different polytypes sometimes intimately intergrown [2].
Mn-Fe carbonate is the most important gangue mineral within the orefield, and there are two types: (1) it occurs as fine-grained (<50 [micro]m) aggregates intergrown with fine-grained sulfides (sphalerite, pyrite, chalcopyrite, and arsenopyrite) to form the laminar and disseminated textures (Figures 4(a)-4(c)), and (2) it occurs as coarse-grained (3~5mm) aggregates of overgrowing coarse-grained sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, and pyrite with banded and massive textures (Figures 4(d)-4(i) and 5(b)).
The strength of reduction roasted pellets is controlled by the rate of formation of intergrown iron crystals, their abundance, and physical structure, while the bentonite binder will have little effect on pellet strength after roasting [26].
