MINES OF THE PEWABIC COUNTRY OF MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN,
VOLUME 3, WISCONSIN IRON
By Bruce K. Cox
The third volume in the mine series covers iron mines and explorations of Iron, Ashland, Vilas, and Bayfield counties, Wisconsin, with 410 listings. Who ran the mines, how were the mines named, who was in charge, et cetera. This book will surprise people with details of iron explorations as far west as Bayfield county and as far south as the Butternut and Glidden areas in southern Ashland county. The book presents a sort of "Who Was Who" of the old-time iron men of northern Wisconsin. The earliest location dates back to the 1840s. Gives detailed histories of the La Pointe Iron Company, who sank the first shaft on the Gogebic-Penokee Range in 1872, and the productive iron mines in and around Hurley, Wisconsin. The mineral rights for most of the producers were held by the Northern Chief Iron Company, an account of which is given in the book. A detailed list of iron ore shipments arranged alphabetically by mine can be found at the end of the book. Hundreds of mines and explorations, and thousands of people are included in this history. Completely footnoted, indexed, 97 illustrations, and locations pinpointed.
