    2021-1-21 · In iron formations the amount of iron has been concentrated by weathering and leaching of non-iron minerals such that we only use the term "iron formation" for rocks that contain >50 iron. The ore (iron) is concentrated by downward percolating water and occurs in places where downward flowing waters are guided and converge such as along a slanting layer of impermeable rock below.
