I think this is it:
"I am sitting with a typemaschine written book. Probably not edited in
examples. From Clyde Keeler's Excerpts from a Life in
Bio-Science(Millidgeville, GA, 1984) page 262-265.
Guess you all know that Clyde Keeler worked together with Mallery during
several of the excavations Mallery preformed
Quoting from page 265:
"Testing of Furnace Materials.
I sent two samples of furnace slag from Spruce Hill, Ohio to the Batelle
Institute. 11.93% was iron, but 0.2% was metallic. Mallery sent them a
specimen at the same time. It was 20% iron, but 0.2% metallic. A bar of
furnace iron was 0.0313% nickel. (Meteori iron iron is about 10% nickel)
Thus, we are dealing with the inefficent smelting of bog iron ore,
a wood fire and bog marl lime to flux the slag. Keeler: Burden of the
Amateur s, NEARA Newsletter. 6:62-66, 1971.
Through the kindness of my brother-in-law, Heinrich Abel, a classifier of
steel for Mannesmann Rohrenwereke (Düsseldorf), I was able to get
of iron and slag analyzed by famous Max Planck Institut für Eisenforschung
in the same city. They concluded that the Ohio furnaces were exactly like
ancient bog iron furnaces excavated in Europe."

Look at this thread:
If anything is certain, it is that there is no proof that we are dealing
here with anything pre-Columbian.
