Mining in the Upper Peninsula
Is there gold in those Upper Peninsula hills? Yes! And silver, too.
Building on his original book, Michigan Gold, Dan Fountain expands the accounts of the quest for precious metals in the Upper Peninsula. Here, prospectors flocked for their chance at wealth, searching for a glint of gold or a vein of silver amid the better-known copper deposits.
From the exploration of mine shafts of old to the mechanized mining of the modern era, Dan guides you through geography and time, and shares details that help to pinpoint the pockets of minerals rumored to be hiding in the hills of the Upper Peninsula to this day.
