Quincy Mine Steam Hoist
Hancock, MI
Latest Review
One of the few places where copper exists in its pure metallic form is the Keweenaw Peninsula, the northernmost tip of Michigan. Ruins of Indian diggings led settlers to explore the rich vein in the 1840s. Soon, mining engineers were coming from Cornwall, England, which, not long after, was eclipsed by Michigan as the world's top copper producer. Tour an actual copper mine by cog railroad and see The Nordberg steam hoist, installed at the No. 2 shaft in 1920, It is believed to be the largest of its kind in the world. Weighing more than 880 tons, it lifted 10 tons of ore at 36.4 miles per hour, thus saving $16,080 in fuel bills in its first year of operation.
