The beneficiation potential of fluorspar tailings to produce high grade haematite pellets was investigated. Detailed characterisation of the tailings was carried out, where physical, chemical, and mineralogical and liberation properties of the sample were determined, with the aim of selecting a suitable beneficiation technique. The XRF results showed that the major oxide component in the sample is Fe2O3 (71.2 wt.%) with main gangue being silica (16.8 wt.%), calcium oxide (3.8 wt.%) and remaining oxides at
