Chemical and mineral composition of ilmenite-titanomagnetite ores from Chiney, Sludinsky, Bystrinsky and Kruchininsky deposits (East Siberia) are studied and compared with those from the Panzhihua pluton in China using microprobe and X-ray difraction analyses, infrared and Möss-bauer spectroscopy. The Mössbauer spectra of typical massive ores were registered for the frst time, which revealed the quantitative ratio of iron-bearing oxides and silicates and the proportion between ilmenite and titanomagnetite of major economic ore types. Three mineralogical-technological ore types were identifed: ilmenite-free, low- and high-ilmenite. It was found that only the Fe-Ti ores of the Kruchininskiy (Angashan pluton) and Sludinsky deposits with high ilmenite content meet economic requirements and are suitable for standard technological processing, whereas other deposits require new technological solutions.
