The only way to make iron without access to a mine or bogs is to go to a river in an iron rich area, and pan out all the dirt until you have black sand. You melt that down with a bit of coal coke and limestone flux to make raw iron. You then carbodize it by slicing the iron thinly and burning it with graphite (or coal coke) and baking soda (or some other usable salt) in a semi-anaerobic environment, and hammer the carbodized iron back. together into a single billet to make steel.
That's great and all if you want to start a corporation that mass produces iron, but how do you mine iron if you don't have access to any metal. I want to know how you go from sticks and stones to metal!!! Do you chisel and smelt with wood, clay, and stone? How is it done? If all metal on Earth was re-deposited back into the ground or if you weren't even on Earth hypothetically speaking, how would you start over? That's what I want to know. Not these fancy metal machines helping you get more metal. I want zero metal to get metal. How do you do that??? Do you Bust out brittle ores with a wooden sledge? Do you steal salts from a volcano and blow up a vein? How do you get from step 1 of having no metal to step 2 of having metal??
They literally talked about it in the video. Bog Iron. You could walk through a virgin bog back in the day and get plenty of iron to get started. You could then do like the Primitive Technology channels and make charcoal and at least do some rough forging with giant wooden mallets. Would be back breaking, time consuming work.
+Alex92kronus that was just in that spot because there was a large layer of iron ore then because of a fracture it got put on a 78 degree angle and it actualy was at the top and they mined along the layer down till it just wasant worth it anymore, and iron is pretty common you can find it just about anywhere
