The increasing needs for carrying solid bulk cargoes by means of marine transport have increased interest in the subject of safe carriage of these cargoes by sea. One of them are ore concentrates. During the transport by the sea, the cargo tends to liquidate and shift toward the sides which may increase the inclination when rolling and leads to loss of stability of the ship. There has been presented the results of researches on moisture content and flow moisture point of copper ore concentrate. Furthermore, transportable moisture limit for this concentrate was determined. The researches are of practical importance, because of the liquefaction phenomenon of concentrates that are transported by the sea. This phenomenon is the cause of many accidents and even may lead the vessel to capsize.
