ishpeming michigan iron ore

A very distinctive area in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

 

The Ishpeming-Negaunee area is headquarters of the Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company, one of Lake Superior's biggest iron mining companies. Cleveland Cliffs began mining in 1847.

The Empire mine annually produces 8 million tons of iron ore pellets. These pellets travel by rail to Marquette and Escanaba where they are shipped by Great Lakes ore carriers to steel mills in the United States and Canada. The Empire mine has produced more iron ore pellets than any other iron mine in the history of Michigan and is among the leaders in North America. While you are here, take a tour of the Tilden Mine, the nation's only tour of a modern operating iron mine. Phone 1-888-578-6489 for information. Tours June through August, Reservations recommended
