Sharons Birthday Gift Slide Show B&W Youth PIctures Ironwood Michigan Gogebic County Upper Peninsula Pine Lake [edit] History Main articles: Timeline of Michigan history and History of Michigan The first known inhabitants of the Upper Peninsula were tribes speaking Algonquian languages. They arrived roughly around 800 AD and subsisted chiefly from fishing. Early tribes included the Menominee, Nocquet, and the Mishinimaki. Etienne Brulé of France was probably the first European to visit the peninsula, crossing the St. Marys River around 1620 in search of a route to the Far East.[1] French colonists laid claim to the land in the 17th century, establishing missions and fur trading posts such as Sault Ste. Marie and St. Ignace. Following the end of the French and Indian War (part of the Seven Years' War) in 1763, the territory was ceded to Great Britain. American Indian tribes formerly allied with the French were dissatisfied with the British occupation, which brought new territorial policies. Whereas the French cultivated alliances among the Indians, the British postwar approach was to treat the tribes as conquered peoples. In 1763 tribes united in Pontiac's Rebellion to try to drive the British from the area. American Indians captured Fort Michilimackinac, near present-day Mackinaw City, Michigan, then the principal fort of the British in the Michilimackinac region, as well as others and killed hundreds of British. In 1764 they began negotiations with the British which resulted in temporary peace and changes in objectionable British policies. Although the Upper Peninsula nominally became United States territory with the 1783 Treaty of Paris, the British did not give up control until 1797 under terms of the Jay Treaty. As an American territory, the Upper Peninsula was still dominated by the fur trade. John Jacob Astor founded the American Fur Company on Mackinac Island in 1808; however, the industry began to decline in the 1830s as beaver and other game were overhunted. [2] A memorial statue in Hanko, Finland, commemorating the thousands of emigrants who left the country to start a new life in the United States, mainly in Michigan.When the Michigan Territory was first established in 1805, it included only the Lower Peninsula and the eastern portion of the Upper Peninsula. In 1819 the territory was expanded to include the remainder of the Upper Peninsula, all of Wisconsin, and part of Minnesota (previously included in the Indiana and Illinois Territories). When Michigan was preparing for statehood in the 1830s, the boundaries proposed corresponded to the original territorial boundaries, with some proposals even leaving the Upper Peninsula out entirely. Meanwhile, the territory was involved in a border dispute with the state of Ohio in a conflict known as the Toledo War. The people of Michigan approved a constitution in May 1835 and elected state officials in late autumn 1835. Although the state government was not yet recognized by the United States Congress, the territorial government effectively ceased to exist. A constitutional convention of the state legislature refused a compromise to accept the full Upper Peninsula in exchange for ceding the Toledo Strip to Ohio. A second convention, hastily convened by Governor Stevens Thomson Mason, consisting primarily of Mason supporters, agreed in December 1836 to accept the U.P. in exchange for the Toledo Strip. In January 1837, the U.S. Congress admitted Michigan as a state of the Union. At the time, Michigan was considered the losing party in the compromise. The land in the Upper Peninsula was described in a federal report as a "sterile region on the shores of Lake Superior destined by soil and climate to remain forever a wilderness."[1] This belief changed when rich mineral deposits (primarily copper and iron) were discovered in the 1840s. The Upper Peninsula's mines produced more mineral wealth than the California Gold Rush, especially after shipping was improved by the opening of the Soo Locks in 1855 and docks in Marquette in 1859. The Upper Peninsula supplied 90% of America's copper by the 1860s. It was the largest supplier of iron ore by the 1890s, and production continued to a peak in the 1920s, but sharply declined shortly afterward. The last copper mine closed in 1995, although the majority of mines had closed decades before. Some iron mining continues near Marquette.[1] Thousands of Americans and immigrants moved to the area during the mining boom, prompting the federal government to create Fort Wilkins near Copper Harbor to maintain order. The first wave were the Cornish from England, with centuries of mining experience; followed by Irish, Germans, and French Canadians. During the 1890s, Finnish immigrants began settling there in large numbers. In the early 20th century, 75% of the population was foreign-born.

The Redridge Steel Dam is a steel dam across the Salmon Trout River in Houghton County, Michigan. Locals say they don't ever remember water coming out this fast or hard, they said at one point is was gushing much harder than when we filmed. All this water was due to heavy, severe storms that resulted in historic flooding across Houghton County and in the Keweenaw peninsula in the upper peninsula of Michigan! (For licensing or usage, contact [email protected]) Some history - Completed in 1901, it is a flat slab buttress dam constructed of steel, a relatively rare material for construction of dams, which are typically earthenworks or masonry. Most sources indicate it was one of only three such dams constructed in the United States, the other two being the Ashfork-Bainbridge Steel Dam (1898, Arizona) and the Hauser Lake Dam (1907, Montana), the last of which failed within a year of construction.

In 2010 I filmed this video with a friend inside the area known as the Pewabic Mine where iron ore was once mined deep underground over 100 years ago. This mine sits along the Menominee Iron Range in Iron Mountain, Michigan. When this mine was in use, all the work was done underground meaning this hole wasn't here at that time.. This was created when the stope they created began to collapse and fall, so to divert disasters in the future they blew in the surrounding ground leaving what you see now. Since creating this huge hole in the side of Millie Hill, two people people have died after falling into the pit. Come explore the mine (on video) because entering it now is illegal.. Make sure to give this video a THUMBS UP and SHARE it too! Comment below what you think about this old iron mine.

Focus on Mining at State of State
[Madison, Wisc...] Governor Walker talked about his agenda to create jobs at his State of the State address on Tuesday, asking the legislature to not get distracted with other issues. The immediate task is to create a new mining law that will allow a company to mine iron ore in northern Wisconsin, creating thousands of jobs in the process. Republicans are on board with this idea, but Democrats believe it is the wrong direction.

Marcia Bjornerud - Professor of Geology - Lawrence University
I have studied the geology of the Lake Superior region since I was in graduate school and have had an ongoing research project in the Penokee range for the past 10 years. Last spring, together with a colleague from the US Geological Survey (William Cannon), I led a group of 60 geologists on a field trip just west of Mellen, WI as part of the annual Institute of Lake Superior Geology. Two of my most recently published papers have been about the geology of the Penokee range. I also served as an expert witness for the National Wildlife Federation and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community in a 2008 contested case hearing in Michigan regarding the Kennecott/Rio Tinto Eagle Rock sulfide mine northwest of Marquette, MI. I know that GLIFWC was also involved in this case. This has been edited for space. The full testimony is here: http://woodsperson.blogspot.com/2012/02/on-listening-to-testimony-marcia.html Like you, I find the restrictions for the review process absurd and antiscientific, and the provisions for wetlands 'mitigation' absurd, but I wanted in particular to contribute information about the 'overburden' waste rock that will have to be removed if the proposed mine were created. Namely, there ARE sulfide minerals (mainly pyrite) in the rock unit that lies immediately above the banded iron formation (the Ironwood iron formation) that is the target rock of the proposed mine. The sulfide-bearing layer is called the Tyler Formation, and it is a black shale, locally baked to a slate, that was laid down under low-oxygen (reducing) conditions, so the iron in it occurs as FeCO3 (siderite) and FeS2 (pyrite) rather than hematite (Fe2O3) or magnetite (Fe3O4) as in the iron ore body. So I emphatically agree with Ms. Soltis' suggestion that that the dichotomy between ferrous and sulfide mines is artificial and the mining bill is flawed in its very conception. Please feel free to cite me as the source of this information, share it with others, and let me know if I can help in any way with your work. Marcia Bjornerud Professor of Geology Lawrence University
