Callaway gets sinter

Two conveyors were pumping sinter into the Cason J. Callaway cargo holds at Hallett Dock in West Duluth yesterday (above). The sinter, bound for steel mills in Gary, came to Duluth from the Keewatin Taconite mine by rail. Sinter is iron ore that didn’t quite make it as a pellet. It is the material at the end of a pelletizing run, part fine material, part broken pellets, but the mill at Gary is able to use it to make steel.
