Abstract: Thermophysical and structural properties of sintered ore particles (SOPs) were determined to expand upon the little documented information there is regarding the properties of these materials. In addition to this, a fractal model was also developed for the prediction of thermal conductivity in SOPs as a function of porosity. The experimental results revealed that the specific heat capacity increased with increasing temperature and that the thermal conductivity decreased with increasing temperature. The fractal model that was developed was found to be capable of predicting the thermal conductivities of SOPs based on porosity.
