Soudan Underground Mine Tours Minnesota DNR

2 天前  Minnesota's first iron ore mine—the Soudan Mine—opened in 1882. Operations went underground by 1892 since the ore body continued deep into the ground. The mine's value was in the special kind of ore it produced. The ore's high oxygen content was used to make high-quality steel in open-hearth furnaces.

Mining on the Iron Range Minnesota Digital Library

2 天前  Minnesota's Iron Range is located in the state's far northeastern corner and includes the following counties: Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake and Saint Louis. Iron mines were generally of two types: open pit and underground. The Iron Range includes three major iron ore deposits: Mesabi Range, Vermilion Range, and the Cuyuna Range.

Major Mines & Projects U.S. Iron Ore Mine

Manganese-rich iron ore (5.6-14.8% Mn) was mined in the Cuyuna Range, contrasting with the low Mn-content of ore in the rest of the district (mostly 1% Mn; Marsden 1968). Other publications include those of Goodwin (1956) on the petrography of the Gunflint BIF, Morey and Southwick (1993) on manganese in the Cuyuna Range, Morey and Southwick

MN iron ore: changing history for 130 years

Because of the Iron Range’s topsy-turvy economy, it’s often assumed by those from outside the area that the mines all closed. It’s true that there are fewer mines today, and many fewer people working in mining, but MN iron ore mines are very much still open and the production from these remaining mines remains extremely significant:

Iron mining in the United States Wikipedia

2021-1-1  Iron mining in the United States produced 48 million metric tons of iron ore in 2019. Iron ore was the third-highest-value metal mined in the United States, after gold and copper. Iron ore was mined from nine active mines and three reclamation operations in Michigan, Minnesota, and Utah.Most of the iron ore was mined in northern Minnesota's Mesabi Range.

Cuyuna Range Underground Mines : Minnesota

Underground mines are comprised of the shafts, drifts and mined extents digitized from found and geo-rectified surface and level maps of the Cuyuna Range underground natural iron ore mines (not all levels of the Armour No. 1, Armour No. 2, and Croft mine drifts and mined extents were digitized).

2020-4-4  "The Cuyuna iron range in east-central Minnesota is unique in the Lake Superior region because of its large manganiferous iron-ore resources. It consists of three areas--the Emily District, the North range, and the South range. Although much smaller than the Mesabi iron range to the north, the Cuyuna was a major producer of iron ore for 80 years.

Soudan Underground Mine State Park on The Iron

Best things to see and do on Minnesota's Iron Range

It ran nearly 120 miles, from Coleraine to Hoyt Lakes, and the soft ore was so shallow it could be dug from open pits. It produced up to a third of the world's iron ore before the high-grade ore began to run out in the 1950s, after which lower-grade ore began to be produced in the form of taconite pellets.
