MANGANESE RESOURCES OF THE CUYUNA RANGE, EAST-CENTRAL MINNESOTA by R.J. Beltrame, Richard C. Holtzman, and Timothy E. Wahl ABSTRACT The Cuyuna range, located in east-central Minnesota, consists of a sequence of argillite, siltstone, iron-formation, graywacke, slate, and quartzite of early Proterozoic age.

However, a reevaluation of drill core and mine samples from the Cuyuna North range has identified strata-bound tourmaline and tourmalinite, which has led to a rethinking of Cited by: Concentrations of tourmaline in Early Proterozoic metasedirnentary rocks of the Cuyuna iron range, east-central Minnesota, provide a basis for redefinition of the evolutionary history of the area.

"The Cuyuna iron range in east-central Minnesota is unique in the Lake Superior region because of its large manganiferous iron-ore resources. It consists of three areas--the Emily District, the North range, and the South range. Although much smaller than the Mesabi iron range to the north, the Cuyuna was a major producer of iron ore for 80 years.

The Cuyuna Range iron and manganese deposits are located some km SW of the Mesabi Ranges in east-central Minnesota, USA defining a district that is approximately x 32 km of tightly folded iron formation. Mining commenced in the district in and finished in Historic mines include Croft and Portsmouth.

The iron formations of the Cuyuna Range are hosted by rocks of the.

The youngest material, which makes up nearly % of the present land surface, consists of unlithified glacial till and glacial weddingvideosfortmyers.com Pleistocene glacial deposits cover older bedrock units, and are typically in the range of to feet thick but may be as much as feet.

The Cuyuna Iron Range is southwest of the Mesabi Range in east-central Minnesota; it is km (68 mi) by 32 km (20 mi) of tightly folded iron formations. Its thickness ranges from 0 to m (0 to ft). Two sequences – the Mille Lacs and North ranges – underlie the southern part of the Animike Group.
