I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

This may be a stupid question but my buddies land is littered with oil shale near an opening to a mine shaft. supposedly it was a coal mine but there sure is alot of shale around it. i was wondering since that stuff burns would it burn hot enough to forge with it??

I forget what that job was called.  My son did a report on it when they studied the U.N. children's rights declaration at school.  He found some old pictures of some very dirty 8-10 year olds sitting in front of a conveyor belt of passing coal picking out the rocks.
