Anyone know anything about magnetic rock at Stainton Quarry?? Also about Iron rich deposites in dykes in Cleveland area and Stainton and Rosevale?? I know there are mines in this area of Rosevale etc.. but are they magnetic and do they have anything to do with Stainton area?

Many thanks

Stainton is/was a whinstone working, i've heard from someone else that the rocks there can be magnetic, but i'm not sure why.

The only real references i've ever seen to it are by a local
http://historyofabeck.blogspot.nl/2011/10/magnetic-whinstone-of-marton-west-beck.html

Some discussion from him here too
http://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,11,260538,261133

There is magnetic ironstone in Rosedale (not Rosevale) but its nothing to do with the Whinstone Dyke.

I've got a big lump of that.


But its the exception rather than the rule, just two small deposits in Rosedale, the rest of the huge Cleveland ironstone area is not like that.

The stainton whinstone deflects a compass needle up to 360 degrees ! far more than anything ive ever tested before, although taking a compass to a large body of magnetic stone like this has its problems. As you aproach the mass of rock your compass is being deflected as you aproach so the person who just takes one from there pocket or bag and tests as they get to an otcrop wil see no or very little deflection.

I did say WATCH, a deflection of 360 will bring you back to norm, Your point please??.
