Canisteo Mine Pit Minnesota DNR

The Canisteo Mine Pit (Canisteo) is located north of the cities of Coleraine, Bovey, and Taconite in Itasca County, Minnesota. It is a pit lake formed in a complex of numerous inactive iron ore mine pits. Mineral exploration began in the area around 1888. Iron ore mining began in the Canisteo in 1907 and operations continued through 1986.

Taconite Mining and Processing Industry Profile

Domestic taconite is mined from open pits because most commercial ore bodies lie close to the surface and their lateral dimensions are large. Mining activities involve overburden removal, drilling, blasting, and removal of waste rock and crude taconite from the open-pit (EPA, 2001).

Mine dewatering Wikipedia

Mine dewatering is the action of removing groundwater from a mine. When a mine extends below the water table groundwater will, due to gravity, infiltrate the mine workings. On some projects groundwater is a minor impediment that can be dealt with on an ad-hoc basis. In other mines, and in other geological settings, dewatering is fundamental to the viability of the mine and may require the use

Iron Range 101: What is taconite? Twin Cities Daily Planet

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.
