Abstract
Limestone ore can be considered as an important source for mineral wealth in Egypt. Using wisdom for extracting these ores supports the national income of Egypt, Where, more than fifty million tons are produced per year. Most of this amount consumes in cement production and iron and steel industry. Beni-khaled quarries El-Menya Governorate, follows the Egyptian Iron and Steel Company, have more than 8 million tons of (-4+1) and (-1+0.0) cm accumulated in the site. Consequently, the main objective of this study is the beneficiation of this piled amount to maximize its beneficial industrial uses. Using crushing and grinding, dry magnetic separation, and calcination techniques produced an ore agrees with the needs of many industries, which increase the national income and solve the current environmental problems in this area.
