Magnetic IRON ORES of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina<br>NCGS Bulletin 32

The purpose of the study of the magnetic iron ores of east Tennessee and western North Carolina was to learn, if possible, something of their value as a source of supply to furnaces in the South. It was undertaken at the suggestion of the State Geologist of North Carolina because the existence of the large deposit at Cranberry had led many persons to suppose that there might be other similarly large deposits in other portions of the mountain district. It was learned, however, soon after the beginning of the field work, that the most promising undeveloped deposits are in the extension of the Cranberry vein in Tennessee and that the topography of the region in which most of the magnetites occur is such as to make Johnson City, where there is already a modern blast-furnace, the natural outlet of the ores.
