Similarly, a syngenetic deposit may be modified by some later process, redistributing some of the mineralization in such a way as to make it appear epigenetic. One can perhaps say, as a general truism, that the origin of a body of mineralization in a sediment is best sought among its relationships to the environment of deposition of the host sediment, be it of the individual sedimentary unit that forms the host, or the whole basin, or a region of which it forms part. Only after this approach has been thoroughly tried need external sources be invoked.

The supercrustal rocks of the greenstone belts can be divided into two; a lower largely volcanic group that contains the imponant Soudan Iron Formation that is mined on the Vermillion Range, and an upper, largely sedimentary group. This latter is represented at Mesabi by the Knife Lake Group; silts, quanzites, greywacke and conglomerates. The Archean era ended with tectonism and the intrusion of granites, about 2'5 Ga ago, which at Mesabi are represented by the Giants Range Granite (2·67 Ga). The eroded remnants of the Archean rocks are overlain by sediments of the Huronian Super-Group (also known as the Animikie by some authors).

The hoisted sylvinite is crushed, and the sylvite recovered by flotation in hot saturated brine, producing a concentrate that is transported via the nearby railway. The product goes all over the world, including large quantities to Europe where farmers often spread as much as 30 kg/ha on arable land each year. Further Reading HOLTER, M. E.
