    What Happened in the Archean Eon? [4.0 to 2.5 billion

    Iron collects on the seafloor. As oxygen filled the oceans, it mixed with iron. Iron rusts when it reacts with oxygen. So over time, the seafloor collected rusted iron. Most of the world''s iron ore deposits were produced in the Archean Eon. We can find banded iron formation all over the world such as Australia, Canada and Russia.
