Types of Iron Ore: Hematite vs. Magnetite

The deposit was discovered in 1844, and ore was first mined there in 1848. Magnetite ore and hematite ore are among the four types of iron ore deposits found in this area. In Minnesota, this type of iron ore is mined mainly in the Mesabi Range, one of the four ranges that make up the Iron Range of Minnesota.

In some beach and river-bar placers where the mining practice is to "skim" the rich streak, magnetite often amounts to several percent of the material washed. Although a valuable iron ore under certain conditions, magnetite is worthless as a byproduct of placer mines. The impression held by some miners that it contains gold is erroneous.
