Once upon a time there was just this one iron filing ...and...*jumps a few billion years*...anyway, so when the Earth was really really hot after the bombardment of zillions of meteors and stuff, it made the heavy elements fall into the middle of the planet while the lighter stuff (like butterfly wings and feathers...and fairy toe nail clippings) floated to the top.

This event was called as you have said ' Tne Great Iron Catastrophe ' because it was difficult to get work....bit like the Great Depression of the 30's.   :D

Glad I could help.....hope you slept well.

This is just one of a few links about The Great Iron Catastrophe http://servercc.oakton.edu/~billtong/eas100/eartorig.htm  .... and now THIS very thread appears as the top result when you enter 'Great Iron catastrophe' via google.Just goes to show how little is written about that event.
