Moorhouse. Gunflint iron formation of the Whitefish Lake Area / by A.M. Goodwin represents a specific, individual, material embodiment of a distinct intellectual or artistic creation found in University of Manitoba Libraries. One car of ore was forwarded to Port Arthur in August of to mark the visit of the Premier of Ontario, Sir Oliver Mowat.

One month later, the mine closed. The fall in the price of iron associated with the Panic of and the discovery of more profitably mined ore elsewhere in Minnesota caused the Gunflint Company to collapse.

The Gunflint Iron Formation, Ontario, presents a virtually unique opportunity for such a study for several reasons: (1) it is well dated geo- chronometrically; (2) it contains quite varied litholo- gies ; (3) over most of the outcrop area, regional meta- morphism is very low to negligible, and contact meta- morphism is restricted to the.

It was intended that this line would be built through to Ely and a link with the Duluth & Iron Range Railroad. Construction concluded in late and the line opened in The Gunflint Iron Company did considerable work in Sections 28 and 29 of Township 65 North, Range 4 West of Cook County.

Equally important, construction on the Duluth and Iron Range Railway had begun in the US. The investors, mainly Port Arthur industrialists, hoped this would offer a direct connection to Duluth from the PAD&W. In the railway got a new name, the Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway.

Construction finally began in the fall of Page 12 - Leith92 thus describe the iron formations, pointing out the distinction between an ' ' iron ore ' ' and an ' ' iron formation ' ': In simplest terms the iron-bearing formations of the Lake Superior region consist essentially of interbanded layers, in widely varying proportions, of iron oxide, silica, and combinations of the two, variously called jasper or jaspilite, where anhydrous 4/5(2).

The Ham Lake Fire uncovered the railway bed, generating renewed interest in the history of the mine and railroad. A six-mile branch, known as the P.A.D & W of Minnesota, was constructed across the border to the Gunflint Iron Mine.

However, very little iron was shipped by the railway and the mine closed. Attempts to construct the 50 remaining miles to link with the Duluth & Iron Range were frustrated by rough terrain and lack of capital.

GEOLOGIC SETTING AND LOCALITIES The Gunflint Iron Formation is exposed in almost continuous outcrop from west of Gunflint Lake to Thunder Bay some km to the east and continues eastward in isolated exposures on the north shore of Lake Superior, an additional distance of some km, to an area just west of Schreiber, Ontario, Canada (Fig.l).
