An overview of what structures and equipment
are required for a mining operaton.

Steelmaking #1: Mining through Smelting Stewart Jones
Part 1 of the Steelmaking Clinic describes the basics
of iron smelting and the operation of the blast furnace.
Because steelmaking is a very heavy industry, extensive
railroad facilities are integral to this manufacturing.
It describes the raw materials required for producing raw
iron with particular attention to the various support industries
that have existed in Colorado and elsewhere and how railroads
are involved and how you can model some of these industries.

Steelmaking #2: Steel Production and Finishing Stewart Jones
Part 2 of the Steelmaking Clinic describes how raw
iron is converted into steel and how raw steel is converted
into commercial products, including rolled shapes, plates
and sheets, rod and wire, pipes, and tubes. The weight and
bulk of these products requires extensive involvement with
railroads. Because there are so many facets to manufacturing,
the clinic will discuss ways to model partial process industries
rather than one giant complex.
