We have made a new attempt to extract iron from iron ore.
First we took 2 kilos of that sand-like iron ore that we have collected in Rudabánya together with the iron ore stones. We heated it in the crucible for about 30 minutes. After the material collapsed in the crucible we poured into sand. We couldn’t find any iron, the material kept its sand like character.
During the second attempt we mixed 2 kilos of iron ore sand with the same volume of cole powder. For at least 2 hours we run the forge on maximum temperature, but it seems nothing happened.
