According to the''latest available figures, Minnesota produced somo 65,069,000 tons of the nation's approximately 100,000,000 'tons last year. ' • : But the taxation department warned that for the Ural Urn* In the state's history, the total reserve was under 1,000,000,000 ton* Current estimated tonnage of th* state's unihlned ore reserves stands at 99n,448,000 tons, A decrease of 38,812,000 from the 1MB estimate. In 1944 — the last year of full war-time production, Minnesota mines yielded 65,069,000 gross tons, Michigan, the second 'highest state In the nation, had. 12,922,000 tons. Alabama came next with 7,164,000 tons. States currently are producing ore only slightly less than during war years. Minnesota, for example, averaged 68,000,000 tons from 1941 to 1945. Hector M. MacCraw, administrative assistant in the department, said that the state may be completely out of ore by 1960 unless new mines are difcovired and developed. MacCraw «ld unmlned Minnesota rcsei-ve« had a total assessed mineral value for tax purposes of H20.34«,635 as of last May 1. "*Ore is assessed at SO per cent of Its full and true value in the ground, •he said. Since ore first was mined in the state- In 1881, a total of 1,569,561,990 tons were dug and- Including •mall removals during . early year, ore w-aj mined at an average rate of 30,000,000 tons yearly.';MacCraw said.
