Iron mines and mining Michigan

Marquette County (Mich.)

Item Number


Operating the American (formerly Sterlling) mine of Clarksburgh, has a small force of men at work unwatering the mine, which will be pumped dry about the middle of the present month. A force of about 40 to 50 men will than be put on and regular mining work will be started. Captain W. H. Johnson of Lake Superior, is directing the operations there at present. The mine has been inactive since 1884, in which year it shipped about 3,000 tons of ore. It is a good property and can be profitably wrought at ruling prices for ore. A creditable output this year will be achieved if nothing untoward prevents.
