Heaps of ore…earthy
Crushed cars - trains -
Unforgiving heat - flame.
Liquid steel - slag* encrusted.

* slag - Slag is a partially vitreous by-product of the process of smelting ore, which separates the desired metal fraction from the unwanted fraction. Slag is usually a mixture of metal oxides and silicon dioxide. However, slags can contain metal sulfides and metal atoms in the elemental form. While slags are generally used to remove waste in metal smelting, they can also serve other purposes, such as assisting in the temperature control of the smelting, and minimizing any re-oxidation of the final liquid metal product before the molten metal is removed from the furnace and used to make solid metal. - wikipedia

What a great image Dan.
I was brought up in the middle of the Nottinghamshire Coal Fields in the middle of England. My grandfather was a coal miner. We were surrounded by mini mountains which are called Slag Heaps - the waste that was brought out of the pits when the coal was extracted. Many of these mines have been closed in the last few years, and the slag heaps have been levelled and landscaped, taking away the elemental characteristics of the area.

Thanks very much I liked your interpretation we as children used to play on slag heaps behind our house although it was prohibited factory property . I was always terrified someone would report us , my older brother was always teasing me to stay at home then , which of course I didn't, I wanted to be as courageous ae the boys ha! ha!
My parent's rock garden had pieces of slag as rocks too , a nice shiny black stone actually very pretty when the flowers bloomed .
A nice memory you brought back.
