In the nineteenth century, production became concentrated in belts of rich iron ore along the flanks of the Blue Ridge mountains, and in the sandstones of the Valley and Ridge Province. In ia, most of the iron was extracted from limonite (Fe 2 O 3 +H 2 O), hematite (Fe 2 O 3 ), magnetite (Fe 3 O 4 ), and carbonate deposits (siderite, FeCO

In 1880, rich, thick, iron ore beds were found in the Mesabi Range in Minnesota and Michigan. A better railroad system made transportation of this ore economical, and the small iron ore furnaces of West ia could not compete. By World War I, only one iron mine, near Harpers Ferry, was still in operation.

2020516&ensp·&enspThe earliest recording of gold mining activity in ia began about 1804 as placer mining, followed quickly by lode mining. Mining continued unabated until the onset of the California Gold Rush, at which point most serious speculators moved west.Production continued at a low level until the Civil War, when it virtually ground to a halt.. Near the end of the war, Union troops began a
Gold deposits in West ia are very limited. While gold is found within the state, quantities rarely garner much interest except from a few hobbyist prospectors. Gold prospectors in West ia would be well advised to focus their efforts a few hours to the east within the Carolina Slate Belt, where gold is much more abundant.
