I have the honor to submit the following report as to the cost of smelting iron iron in Ogden from the ores contu-uoi.- 8 and available thereto. Some of the items are necessarily approximate, us nothing but an actual test can disclose the actual cost. In the main, the figures are sufficiently accurate to furnish a safe basis for your purpose, which h to determine upon tho odvisability of building reduction works in this city for handling the superior iron ores of the adjiicsut mountains. The iron ores in this vicinity are The chiefly hematite and specular. former ia the most valuable and is found in immense ledges or veins, foray feot wide. Mining is thus reduced to a minimum cost as the ore enn be taken out about as cheap as etone can be quarried under the most favorable condition. The ore is almost pure oxide of iron; in fact, eo free from deleterious elements that when assays have been handed to eastern iron smelters they havjuestioned the assays and expressed doubta as to the existence of such valuable ores in the world. Being free from phosphorus with only a slight trace of sulphur or 6ilica, and no tintanuin or zinc elements usually found in iron ores, our hematite requires no fluxing except time and sand and smelting is as simple in process as burning lime or making charcoal. This ore yields from 48 per cent, to 53 per cent, pure iron. The other class of ore3 the specular ore is also available. It contains a small per cent of sulphur, silica and phosphorus. This ore mny be used with the hematite in mixing charges for the blast, thus avoiding the expense of sand. While owing to tho elements mentioned it will not make good steel, it make9 a superior claps of iron for general utility. When the iron works of this city were in operation eight years ago, many disadvantages had to be contended with. The immense coal tields of Crested Butte, in Western Colorado, and of Utah, were not opened, and the cost of McConnel-vill- e coke was such as to exclude it altogether. Hence the fuel used was charcoal and it cost on an average of $16.90 for each ton of pig iron turned out. Ore cost $8 per ton delivered, whereas now it could be laid down at half that price and d those figures.
