Abstract

"The Iron deposit locally Known as "Bucklands Bank" is situated in the south half of Sec. 20. T. 37 R. 8 west Phelps County Missouri, about four (4) and a half (1/2) miles west of Rolla and on the line of the Atlantic and Pacific R.R.

It was opened by Sen. T. C. Buckland of St. Louis in 18--, but subsequently was leased to Mr. Wm. James of St. James, who shipped the ore for treatment at the Ozark Furnace five and a half (5 1/2) miles further westward on the railroad.

The deposit is classified by Schmidt* as a disturbed Specular ore deposit, that is, it is an aggregation of ores, which in their former state lay parallel to the enclosing rock and consequently forming a layer between any stratified or foliated rock, but which has since been disturbed by various causes"--page 1.
