General note

Caption on item: "WY Ore Mine," and "Symbolic of Wyoming industrial growth is the complex of buildings and conveyor lines at U.S. Steel's new taconite iron ore mining and beneficiating operations near South Pass, some 30 miles south of Lander. The octagonal-shaped building at the left is the agglomerate storage building. At the right is the agglomerating plant, where concentrated iron ore is literally 'burned' into rock-hard balls about the size of marbles."
