Help ! can some one help identify this !!!

I found this material on my land and i would like to find a use for it. It is magnetic and heavy (in the iron family ) it doesn't seem to rust though. I had 2 pieces analyzed and they  came back, the first

1) 73% fe, <0.003 C and the remainder is oxygen other metals ARE  MANGANESE .43 silicon .76 al .65 the res is trace amounts.

the second 2) fe 65% .001 C, MANGANESE.34 silicon 2.6 al 3.08 titanium .24 the rem is oxygen

I would like to sell this if i can ,and i would really like to know what it is. I can also upload the analysis sheet if necessary.
thanks in advance
