The "ferrous titanium oxides" reminded me of some research I’d done in North Creek, NY. In the Adirondacks were the titanium oxide mines at Tahawas. An older 19th century iron foundry was nearby and found the "titaniferous magnitite" difficult and was later researched. It’s said the tanks in WWII in Europe were painted with it to camo them in snow. The State of NY recently did some restoration work in the "ghost" village of "Adirondac". Henry Ford wanted to buy it for auto production. During WWII rail was laid up to the mines from the North Creek garnet mine railhead and the "world’s largest titanium mine" was in operation until the 1960s. It is also where then VP Teddy Roosevelt was first sworn in as President after the death of William McKinley. A St. Joseph native American had led explorers to a dam described as all iron.
