Missing Michigan Copper: Ancient copper mines in U.P. Updated version
 
26:44
Had to make a few amendments A reading from ancient America Donald J. McMahon Symbologist/Researcher on the missing copper from Michigan. was there an ancient prehistoric PreDeluvian worldwide culture existing? People like Columbus were useful fools used as pawns, I never understood how it is Columbus gets the title of the one who discovered America when he didn't even land there, he landed way south It's not like he discovered Virginia or New York. He didn't even land in the US. Mainstream historians, archeology, geology All of the-ology's are in line with the church still. when you put them together it spells theology! Music from Doug Maxwell/Media right productions.video source material from http://ancientamerica.com/missing-pre... and Science frontiers - http://www.science-frontiers.com/cat-... Also music from Les Hayden" Not Really" I can no longer find it NOTE: When I mention the singling out the first "White man" to see Michigan copper, What it should have maybe been was the first Spaniard to see Michigan copper.Would he then represent all Spaniards? I would think not Or European man one can not clump people according to what shade of brown they are.Have you ever seen the experiment a teacher did with her students where each day she would designate a certain eye color that was to be ostracized for the day and right away the kids saw the schism of it all, for example, today all kids except those with blue eyes get to enjoy ice cream while blue-eyed kids must watch the others eat it something like that, I heard a wise person once say if you hate something you will come back in the next life as that what you hated, and I think that is a very good approach to take whether true or not . Just my thoughts on that, to be that way but it just continues Mike Wallace asked The actor Morgan Freeman how should we deal with it and he replied " Just stop talking about" I liked that answer.

Spent an afternoon exploring two tunnels at the Hecla Mine. Both tunnels led to extensive, multi-level workings. These are old mines dating back to the late 1800s. Some of these mines were re-worked in more recent years due to some modern-looking equipment being left at the site.
Quincy Mine Tour
 
06:13
The Quincy Mine was founded in 1846 by the merger of the Northwest Mining Company and the Portage Mining Company. Due to poor communication between government offices, these two speculative mining companies had purchased the same tracts of land during the mining rush of the early 1840s.[7] The directors met and decided to merge, with significant investment coming from Massachusetts (the town of Quincy, Massachusetts lent the mine its name). While many other copper mines were founded at the same time, the Quincy Mine became the most successful of the 1840s-era mines, and was the country's leading copper-producing mine from 1863 (when it exceeded the production of the Minesota Mine) through 1867 (after which it was exceeded by the Calumet and Hecla).[8] The mine was the first Michigan copper mine to switch from fissure mining to amygdaloid mining, when the recently discovered Pewabic amygdaloid lode was found to cross Quincy property in 1856.[9] High-grade fissure veins contained large, pure masses of copper, but the masses could take days or even months to extract, at high cost. Amygdaloid mining consisted of extracting lower-grade strataform orebodies in the "amygdaloid zones," the upper portions of basalt lava flows. Rock bearing small pockets of copper could be blasted out immediately and processed elsewhere at much lower cost. Amygdaloid mining proved much more productive than fissure mining, and the size and richness of the Pewabic lode in particular allowed the Quincy to produce profits for 53 consecutive years. The Quincy company expanded laterally along the lode by buying out adjacent properties. The company bought the Pewabic mine in 1891, the Mesnard and the Pontiac in 1897, and the Franklin mine in 1908.[10] This helped the mine survive longer than almost all other Keweenaw copper mining companies, except the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company and the Copper Range Company. To attract a better class of worker, the Quincy Mining Company built and maintained housing for the workers. Over the course of operations, the types of housing ranged from simple tents in the early days, to complete three story houses shortly before the mine's shutdown. The executives on the east coast wanted to build more elaborate and fancy homes with amenities such as electricity and running water. However, the on-site managers didn't think it was necessary for the miners to have such high-class dwellings. But the east coast executives realized that if they offered nicer homes to the workers, the miners were more likely to stay, raise families, and be less likely to leave the area or transfer to another mining company. This strategy proved effective and helped the Quincy Mining Company retain its status as one of the premier mining companies in the region. The Quincy Mining Company closed operations (but did not dissolve) in 1931 due to low copper prices.[11] During World War II, the mines re-opened due to increased copper demand. When the government stopped supporting copper prices after the war, the mines quickly closed for good.

Widowmaker
 
01:51
The year is 1913. At the time, the present location is known as Red Jacket, the home of the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company. C&H is known as the largest mining company in the nation, hauling out millions upon millions of tons of copper out of Michigan's Keweenaw peninsula and employing thousands. With all good comes bad - the company suffers from numerous labor issues. The most notable labor issue to this ride is the introduction of the one man pneumatic drill, also known as the Widowmaker due to the fact that it was extremely dangerous to operate. A labor strike is imminent. Climb aboard the Torch Lake locomotive, speed past The Dredge and through a mine shaft, blast out of the steam hoist and traverse numerous hills, lakes, and even caves as you soar through the trees of Michigan's Keweenaw peninsula before the mine is closed.

Abandoned Dredge and Copper Mine:  Inside Look!
 
11:31
Exploring some old Copper Mining ruins (https://amzn.to/2KaB6dk) and a shored 100+ year old Dredge outside the towns of Houghton and Hancock, Upper Michigan, known as the Quincy Mine area. **Copper County Quincy Mine Field Guide: https://amzn.to/2KaB6dk The building was a drop point and grinding/crushing facility for the raw mining material (copper). Once it was crushed, they would use chemicals to get the copper sulfides out of the rock. From there it went across the street to the smelter and then shipped out down the channel. If you look closely in the building you will notice the concrete is actually "bleeding" and creating stalactites and stalagmites on the roof and floor. I am not sure if this is natural erosion found with old concrete structures or a possible side effect from using the mining chemicals in this building. You could definitely tell it was contributing to the decay of the building supports/foundations. Most of the concrete in these areas are crumbling like they are made of paper-mache. The Dredge was old, crumbling, and very difficult to get in. Although technically climbing and exploring the Dredge is not permitted due to safety, its pretty cool to climb around a decaying structure this large from 100 years ago. Just do so at your own Risk :) The technology in the Dredge is old, but still very impressive! Most of the Smelting building (or what I believe is the smelter) is gone. The only thing that remains is the smoke stack and coal hopper. Both of which are pretty impressive. The coal hopper even had some coal left in it. **Copper County Explorer Quincy Field Guide: https://amzn.to/2KaB6dk --PLAYLIST on all Sights & Adventures: https://goo.gl/8n1VKi Thanks for Watching, and don’t forget to Like, Share, and Subscribe!

1913 Massacre, by Woody Guthrie (cover)
 
06:01
A song about the death of dozens of striking copper miners' children at a Christmas party organised for them by the miners' union in Calumet, Michigan, in 1913. 16,000 miners at 21 mines, owned by the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company, had been on strike since July of that year, for a decent wage and better safety standards, particularly against the use of a new one-man operated rock drill nicknamed the "widowmaker" because it had claimed so many miners' lives. Having held out for so long and mining families undergoing such hardship on strike, sustained by financial and moral support from across the US labour movement, a Christmas party was organised for the children with presents being donated from sympathisers across the country. However, two members of a vigilante organisation called the Citizens' Alliance, set up by the mining boss James MacNaughton (whose salary, incidentally, was $85,000 in 1913) to break the strike, burst into the hall shouting, "Fire, fire!" and in the panic that followed, 73 people, most of them children, were crushed to death or suffocated as the Citizens' Alliance members held the door shut.

These images are taken at a little known area just up the hill from the friendly village of Lake Linden, MI, called the incline location. During the early days of copper mining it was the upper end of a tramway used by Calumen & Hecla Mining Company for moving copper ore from the top of the hill to the processing area in Lake Linden. It was also a sandstone quarry and many of the foundations in the town of Lake Linden, MI were made from this sandstone.
