Mines of the Pewabic Country of Michigan and Wisconsin, Volume 4, Michigan Iron By Bruce K. Cox
Paperback: $34.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
In February of 1996 I started researching the history of the mines of the Gogebic Range with the intention of publishing a very modest account of the mines, with all of them arranged in alphabetical... More > order. By June of that year I had prepared three dozen pages and had covers printed for the books. At that point I began to realize that I could add a lot of details to these listings by checking into old newspaper reports and other sources, and I began my research in earnest. The more I dug, the more I realized that this was a project worth devoting some time to. I soon learned that not all of these so-called mines really were mines; the majority of them were no more than explorations that never produced profits (except from the sale of stock) for their owners or stockholders. Most of these old mine sites are private property and are not open to the public.

More > Upper Peninsula of Michigan during the 1880s and dozens of gold and silver mining companies were formed in an attempt to mine the precious metals and/or sell stock to gullible investors. Spectacular reports of extremely rich gold and silver finds appeared in newspapers across this region, and some people expected these mines to turn the area into another El Dorado, Comstock Lode or Black Hills gold field. It is impossible to judge the veracity of some of the old assays that appeared in the papers, or the potential value of these mines; per-haps with modern technology and methods some of the properties described in this history could actually be profitable and produce gold and silver today.< Less
