Sampling from the Soudan Mine. The Soudan Mine is an Algoma-type Iron Formation rich in hematite. Panel A shows a cross-section of the mine looking East-North-East at 78.5°. Panel B depicts a three dimensional view of the mine, including the cross-section shown in Panel A, and with the sampling sites shown for the "Red" and "Black" samples. Panel C shows the overall flow of water in the mine at level 27, located 714 meters below the surface (Panel D). Panels E and F show a close up of the two sampling sites.
