General note

Caption on item: "WY Ore Mine," and "Concentrated iron ore at U. S. Steel's Atlantic City Ore Mine rolls up into marble-sized balls inside revolving balling drums large enough in diameter for a tall man to stand up inside without bumping his head. Constant check by agglomerating plant personnel at the new Southwestern Wyoming operations insure that the mud-like balls are the correct size and shape before they are conveyed to twin agglomerating lines for 'burning' to a rock-hard consistency."
