A new technique of beneficiation of tailings from the Krivoy Rog magnetite ore is described. By employing a high–intensity separator, the iron–rich and iron–poor products are obtained. These products can be used in building industry: the iron-rich fraction can be used as a correction component of a raw material in the production of the portland cement clinker, as a replacement for the pyrite cinder. The iron–poor product can be used for the manufacture of bricks and other building materials.
