Iron in the blood was one of the few things about the composition of the largely carbon Humans the Horta Ttan could recognize as life as she knew it.

Iron is a good signal when mining for latinum crystals as they typically form near deposits of the metal. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

An iron rush in the late 22nd century strip-mined the Ferrous-Asteroid Belt. (TOS comic: "The Trial of Captain Kirk")
