The ore will come from Veneiut- , from the Quebec-Labrador area, Jbcrla, the Steep Rock La Ice area In Canada, perhaps from other South American or Caribbean countries. Development of these foreign fields was undertaken to prevent depletion of high-grade reserves In the great Mesabi Range in Minnesota, which lias long supplied 'the major ore needs of the nation. The swift expansion of steelmak- ing capacity of the industry also made new sources of material desirable. Ore transport facilities are being strained by Ihe present record output of a little over 2,000.000 tons of raw steel weekly. Lake ore carriers haul millions of lens of iron ore every summer down from. Ihe Lake Superior area. This Is used not only to keep the furnaces going during the shipping season, but also to build up stockpiles for winter operations. 91 Million Tons Needed Defense officials think 91.500,000 OILS will be needed from the lakes raffic this year to maintain near- St. Louis Boy 5 Found D JUT:e Waters BRANSON.

Although the lake boats got an arly start—three weeks ahead of ist year's schedule—two major companies already have an- ounced they plan extensive all- ail shipments to the mills. Oliver Iron Mining Co., U.S. Steel ubsldiary, expects to average 400 o 500 cars daily from the Ooeebic nd Mesabi Ranges to the Pittsburgh Youngstown and Chicago reas. Republic Steel Corp. Is staring similar all-mil shipments lo he Youngstown district. The industry anticipates ore hipped by rail this year will ex- •eed 4,000,000 tons, dependent on availability of gondolas and hopper cars. Several companies have new ore oaU under construction lo enlarge capacity of present (leets. but most of these will not be In service before the 1952 season. Other construction to meet the ;lgantic transport problem includes railroads to carry ore lo waterways, barges, docks and loading and unloading facilities. Supplies to Increase In addition U> the Icreign ore counted on to feed the new steel- making furnaces, ore supplies will be increased by the reduction to pellets of the hard Iron-bearing rock known as laconite, of which billions of tons are available in this country. Reserve Mining Co., owned by Republic and Armco Steel Corp., lisa scheduled for completion by 1955 a Tacontte processing plant at Eeaver Bay, Minn., to produce some 2,600,000 tons cf pellets a year. Tom Campbell, editor of the Iron Age, metalworking trade weekly, estimates that from all sources there will be available lo the Industry by 1£60 some 47.000.003 tons or more annually of ere which Is not available today. The transporting of this material will be a major problem, A record total of nearly 9.200,000 Ions of foreign ore was imported last year from 15 counties, the three largest suppliers being Chile. Sweden and Canada-Newfoundland. This figure will look pretty small when all the new developments are _in full swing. JONESBORO, April 18.
