I have a friend that in the next year or so is planning on trying to smelt iron, and make steel. If anyone has a few 5 gal buckets of cleaned out cons laying around, or might now of anyone near fairbanks that might have a bunch it would be appreciated.

Most people that keep concentrates want to keep them. Most people who do not don't have any. So be patient in getting any response.

Once you get all the gold out, most people throw out the black sand. Still there ought to be some one with some. It does not need to be pure magnetite, does it? Pure Fe2O3 might be really tough to come by.
