"An overall picture of operations in a modern steel mill is given in this production. Telling the story of steel from the time the iron ore is taken from the mines and transported to Hamilton, Ontario, the many processes required to convert raw material into the gleaming, versatile metal are seen. Tapping of the furnaces and the pouring of ingots are two particularly outstanding shots. Some auxiliary processes in manufacturing steel products are also described."

"Reportage détaillé, filmé dans une aciérie de Hamilton, Ontario, démontrant les multiples opérations par lesquelles passe le minerai de fer avant de devenir le produit versatile qu'est l'acier. L'étroite coopération entre les ouvriers et les techniciens de laboratoire font de l'acier un métal de miracle ; sur lui reposent les fondations de nos grandes villes et de nos industries géantes."
