MINES OF THE PEWABIC COUNTRY OF MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN
VOLUME 1, GOLD AND SILVER
By Bruce K. Cox
This is the first of a four-volume series that will cover the gold, silver, copper, and iron mines and explorations of the region, which includes the fringes of Ontonagon county and all of Gogebic county in Michigan; all of Iron and Ashland counties and part of Bayfield county, Wisconsin. The iron range that crosses this region was originally called the Pewabic, but through a misreading became the Penokee. Western Gogebic county was once part of Pewabic township. Volume 1 lists 104 locations in alphabetical order. It begins with an introduction and section maps showing the territory covered by the locations, when known. Illustrated with photographs of some of the sites, old advertisements, maps, et cetera, this is an interesting historical account of the old gold and silver explorations, few or none of which ever amounted to profitable mining operations. Extensively footnoted, with bibliography and complete index to names, companies and locations. First published in 2002.
