In the scope of the mean field approximation the nine nearest neighbour exchange interactions existing among the ferric ions in BaFe12O19 hexagonal ferrite have been determined from the experimental sublattice magnetizations. It is shown that these exchange interactions are well explained by means of the superexchange theory. It is also concluded that some direct exchange interaction does exist among the octahedral 4fVI ions. The calculated magnetization, paramagnetic susceptibility, and Curie temperature are in good agreement with the corresponding experimental values. The stability of the collinear Gorter-type magnetic structure of BaFe12O19 is discussed as well.
