    Taconite is a low-grade iron ore. When the high-grade natural iron ore was plentiful, taconite was considered a waste rock and not used. But as the supply of high-grade natural ore decreased, industry began to view taconite as a resource. Dr. E.W. Davis of the University of Minnesota, along with other scientists and engineers, conducted years

    In winter, when the Soo Locks are shut down, taconite pellets move out of the mining region by rail to the port in Escanaba, which is open to shipping year-round. The first load of iron ore through the Soo Locks amounted to 132 tons in August 1855. Total ore tonnage that year was 1,447. During the 1860 shipping season 120,000 tons of ore passed

    For taconite flotation to work, amine and air are introduced to the slurry in a highly agitated flotation cell. The well-mixed contents of the cell allows for the amine and silica to interact and subsequently attach. Amine is also attracted to the air bubbles. The binding of the silica-laden amine to the air bubbles brings the silica to the surface

    Sep 18, 2011 Taconite is a low-grade iron ore. Originally thought to be of little value, taconite was considered overburden (waste) in the days when high grade iron ore was mined. The iron content, magnetite, is only 20- 30% compared to 50 - 60 % iron content in red ore. Red ore is also referred to as direct shipped ore because it can be shipped without processing
