The Marquette Iron Range is a deposit of iron ore located in Marquette County, Michigan in the United States. The towns of Ishpeming and Negaunee developed as a result of mining this deposit. A smaller counterpart of Minnesota's Mesabi Range, this is one of two iron ranges in the Lake Superior basin that are in active production as of 2018. The iron ore of the Marquette Range has been mined
Iron ore production in Michigan had a humble beginning. Prior to 1840, bog ore found in swamps was used in charcoal furnaces to produce pig iron. This iron ore was of low grade and deposits were small, thus limiting the size and advance of the industry. It was not until discovery of the iron formations in 1844,
Iron-ore mining methods vary by the type of ore being mined. There are four main types of iron-ore deposits worked currently, depending on the mineralogy and geology of the ore deposits. These are magnetite, titanomagnetite, massive hematite and pisolitic ironstone deposits. Banded iron formations
IRON MINING: WHERE AND WHY? It was called the barren waste, this land that is now Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. However, since its first iron ore shipment of two hundred pounds in 1846, the Upper Peninsula mines (below) have produced well over one billion tons of iron ore.

The Gogebic Iron Range extends for 80 miles from Lake Namekagon, Wisconsin, in the west, to Lake Gogebic in Michigan, in the west. Nathaniel D. Moore uncovered ore deposits in the Penokee Gap near Bessemer in 1872, but it was not until 1884 that the first iron ore shipment was made.

Michigan’s Iron Ranges. Early surface mining on the Marquette Iron Range at the Jackson Iron Mine in Negaunee (ca1860). Shaft and ore stockpiles at the Negaunee Mine. Underground mining at the Vulcan Mine on the Menominee Iron Range near Norway, Michigan.
Types of iron ore. Iron ore is present in a number of places and geologic settings within Wisconsin. Iron ore can be defined on the basis of its iron content into low-grade ore (taconite), which commonly contains 25 to 35% iron, and high-grade ore, which contains 50 to 70% iron.
MICHIGAN’S COPPER DEPOSITS AND MINING. The first mineral boom in the United States occurred in 1843 when people from all over the continent began to chase the copper, silver and iron of Michigan’s upper peninsula. These mines were in commercial operation for more than a hundred years. the ore deposits of the Michigan Copper District are
Geologic and structural environment of the iron ore deposits of Mexico Geologic and structural environment of the iron ore deposits of Mexico. Economic Geology; 45 (2): The most important Mexican iron ore deposits occur along the Pacific slope of the continent and, sporadically, in the northeastern and central parts of the high plateau.
Monazite in iron-ore deposits within the hinges of Penokean-aged folds yields an age of ca. 1.8 Ga, which is interpreted to record a second phase of hematite enrichment. Monazite and xenotime in iron-ore deposits along the limbs of regional folds give ages of ca. 1.77 Ga and are interpreted to record a later episode of hematite upgrading.
Iron ore is a mineral substance which, when heated in the presence of a reductant, will yield metallic iron (Fe). It almost always consists of iron oxides, the primary forms of which are magnetite (Fe 3 O 4) and hematite (Fe 2 O 3). Iron ore is the source of primary iron for the world's iron and steel industries.
The first shipment of ore in any quantity consisted of 152 tons, which was sent by the Cleveland Iron Mining Company to the Sharon Iron Company in Sharon, Pennsylvania in September, 1853. It took four vessels to move the ore from Marquette to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, where it was portaged over the falls to be reloaded on another vessel.
The Princeton Iron Mine is near Princeton, Michigan. Historically the site has been part of the Marquette Iron Mining District. The site was first discovered in 1844. The Princeton Iron Mine was closed at the time of data entry with no known plans to re-open. Production size when active was considered to

Michigan Iron Industry Museum, near the site of the forge, will be visited during the 2019 Mining History Association conference. Other Michigan iron ore discoveries followed as prospectors gained a better understanding of the geology and pushed into unexplored territory.

A CONTRIBUTION TO ECONOMIC GEOLOGY IRON-ORE DEPOSITS OF THE IRON MOUNTAIN DISTRICT WASHINGTON COUNTY, IDAHO By J. HOOVER MACKIN ABSTRACT The oldest rocks of the Iron Mountain district are a group of greenstones, with interbedded marble, probably correlative with the Permian Clover Creek greenstone.
The iron ore deposits are found in sedimentary rocks. They are formed by the chemical reaction of iron and oxygen mixed in the marine and fresh water. The important iron oxides in these deposits are hematite and magnetite. These are ores from where iron is extracted.
Aug 11, 2013 All the world’s Banded Iron Formations appear to have been formed by an unusual, one-off event. With many types of mineralisation we can see the process occurring today for example active volcanoes show us mines in the making, as does undersea hydrothermal activity. Banded iron
