Hello all, new member here. Not an exact beginner to woodland survival but I would like others thoughts. So at a house I used to live in before we had to demolish it due to age there was a creek that ran below my drive maybe 20 ft from the house. This creek has always been orange like anything that lands in it will start to dye orange after so long. I believe this is bog iron from a spring underground, seeing as the entire area was a coal mine that still has many shafts running under all the hills. In a survival situation I think it would be a good place to settle and try to extract the iron from the surrounding ground. Any thoughts?
