I wouldn't call meteorites pure iron. Elementary iron; yes. Pure? More often than not, no, it has a lot of contaminants.

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.

How to get iron: 1. Punch a tree 2. Make a pick axe 3. Mine some stone 4. Make a stronger pickaxe 5. Find coal and mine it 6. Find iron ore and mine it 7. Craft a furnace and smelt the iron.

If your making cookies from scratch you can get flour from someone you don't have to make it yourself, so stop complaining he didn't mine his own stuff, that would have taken years also

Give him a break, guys. So what he didn't dig his own mine. It would take him years to do that by himself

How to get iron: go down a pre-dug mine and get handed a chunk of iron ore. How did you go from knapping stone tools to extracting iron?
Bilbo_Gamers (1 year ago)
The answer is you don't. Not in one generation

It might have been one of those situations where he wasn't allowed to do something

Can’t iron be mined from caves? You don’t have to dig a cave.
lastplace199 (1 year ago)
Cameron Speer I honestly think he should have with the bog iron rather than the mine. That way he wasn't using an premade mine or spending the time to dig his own.

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.

How do they even find iron? I mean it's half a mile under the surface
Linus Chaple (3 years ago)
+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
