The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 2

No. 511

No. 511.

This specimen was forwarded by Captain Hutton from Tokomairiro. It is an excellent ore. On analysis it shows of—
Sesquioxide of iron 79.5 per cent
Water 14.0 per cent
Earthy matter 6.5 per cent

This is equal to 55.75 per cent, of metallic iron, and in such a state of combination and purity as to be very easily reduced. It will, if found in large quantity, be a very valuable ore of iron, and should not be neglected.
