TRock to Iron

I extract metallic iron from the ground using some chemistry and a new induction heater. At some point I'll get around to turning the pig iron into steel and making something from it.

    So to make mild steel you just need to blow more oxygen into the crucible during the forging process?

    Love your channel bud. I'm up in Northern Ontario where the Canadian shield out crops are at the surface everywhere. I wish I knew what types of rock ( mineral - metals ) I was looking at. How about a quick video of how to identify the basic minerals and rock types. . ? I wish I could take you out exploring my neck of the woods. I have chromium samples and other sulphate samples you would love to see. The chromite comes directly from the Ring of Fire chromite deposit in the James Bay lowlands. Contact me and I would love to send you a sample.

    1: My area has haematite in the shale. It doesn't have magnetite. How should I separate it out if it isn't magnetic 2: It's Carbon monoxide coming out of the crucible. That's a good thing - it means you have enough Carbon to reduce the Iron into metal. It burns because Carbon monoxide + Oxygen = Carbon dioxide + energy 3: Could you have smelted the iron using a fuel-rich natural gas or petrochemical flame? At least it doesn't add to the slag like coal does. 4: Does your area also contain Pyrite or other Iron-associated elements (e.g. Nickel, Manganese, Chromium, Vanadium)?

    grinding wheel spark trails are an indicator of the type of material. Want to make Iron with my nephew this summer. Great Vid again. Always a pleasure.
