MINNESOTA WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1964 Trempealeau Driver 29 Killed TEN CENTS PER COPY TWENTY-FOUR PAGES THE TACONITE AMENDMENT Thousands of Jobs at Stake Every By FRANK R UHLIG Second of Strict factor that bears on the nite Amendment proposal is king-size It was inspired in part by a massive drop of 30 million tons in annual ore production in the past 10 years The resultant lists of jobless run to more than names New taconite plants if they are built require investments of more than million each The great silent pits that yielded up to billion tons of high-grade iron ores before ing into exhaustion are awe-inspiring The ber of unemployed miners men has all but overwhelmed welfare agencies and has inflicted losses up to million a year on the state's unemployment compensation funds NOW mines gaping reminders that Minnesota ores supplied 60 percent of the nation's steel for a iod This era saw two global wars and ecl national expansion whose peaks still are re- mote and They employed 20.000 ers as they supplied ore for industrial blast furnaces Occupation taxes dedicated to educational trust funds poured millions of dollars into state schools and colleges Minnesota's tem became one of the most generous in the nation Iron Range communities depending on ing properties for heavy percentages of their taxes suddenly found themselves standing cally in mid-air Feeding on itself the situation worsened Values declined for other properties whose worth depended on that of the economy's keystone industry Postwar discovery of vast new ore fields in several countries quickened the whirlpool Easily mined by low-cost open-pit methods these forced world ore prices down Minnesota's remaining high-grade ore which once enjoyed a market was forced to follow All northern Minnesota economies were pulled inexorably ward the drain when this plug went out THE WAVES OF economic began to lap against more distant shores undercutting banks here and there Heavier welfare costs meant disproportionate shares of state income tunneled into an area which floundered in frus- inability to help itself try as it might Markets for the products of neighboring farm and industrial regions fell off The tourist industry a reasonably stable factor was unable to absorb the impact sufficiently to help out because of its relatively short season and fixed requirements Attention turned to the area's vast resources of taconite a stone with low iron con- tent II had been largely ignored because costs of separating iron wore prohibitive compared to those of scooping up ores from open pits Three tons of this invincible rock must be ground at great expense to produce one ton of concentrate containing 64 percent iron Oilier manufacturing processes were needed to compress it into pellets for efficient handling and smelting Some experimental processes were for separating iron from the rock which once was considered worthless but nevertheless was abundantly available Much of the research was done at the University of Minnesota which like rest of the slate had a considerable in- terest in the project's success It was estimated that Minnesota has enough taconite to produce 50 million tons of ore annually for 300 vears FATALITY Dale En- right 29 Trempealeau Wis was killed in this car when il collided with car near Centerville Deputy It L Megrath left and Trempealeau County
