  1. Hello all! Very excited to have found this website I recently purchased my first home, in the Atlanta suburbs with an acre of woods sloping down to a stream out back, and immediately started fantasizing about what I could do with my first bit of land. Fast forward a few months, and I've cleared and leveled a spot where I'm telling friends I want to build a little bloomery and smelt some local ore. Why? I don't need a reason. But for the sake of the missus and other people who don't "get it", I'm saying that I want to demonstrate that it's possible, using only implements available to pre-1492
  2. This is some ore I've picked up over the past couple years. The ones with the holes in it I think are unusual. Some of the holes are lined with black and/or a glassy substance. I'm just a hobby rock hound, so I wondered what y'all think. Most of this is from Western Tennessee and some is from Georgia. After breaking some of it apart, it's hard to tell them apart. I took some pieces and heated them with a torch and then I could pick them up with a magnet, so it has some Iron. I may use Lee Sauder's method to check for a percentage. Some also have some quartz like material in the ore, is that no
  3. http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37237-roasting/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37236-ore/ So, sitting in the backyard, happy full of waffle house porkchops, sipping a cold one, and watching the side of my burn barrel glow as I roast about 10 gallons of hematite I picked up in North Georgia. Major iron mining area up until the War xxxxxxxxx. Then some XXXX named Grant or something apparantly burned the mining areas near Atlanta to the ground. Probably a pewter caster or something and got jealous....... Getting it ready for a first time solo iron bloom. Next step, l

    Roasting

    So, first go at solo smelting. Roasting my ore, sipping a cold one,and watching the side of the barrel glow.

    Ore

    Ore from near Red Top Mountain in Cartersville, Ga. Ain't telling the exact location. Started roasting it this afternoon. Lots of it for pulling out of the clay up there.
  11. I'm searching for a source of iron-bearing sand, and I got reccomended Lake Ontario (I'm in Ottawa), but upon further research I haven't been able to find out where this stuff is or if it even exists (Thanks to mailemaker for giving me the idea of iron sand though! :) ). So I'm wondering if there is a verifiable site near to Ottawa?
