Upper Michigan Minerals

If you find a broken link let me know.

The Upper Peninsula was part of a magma flow where Copper, Gold and Iron is found today. You can also find Thomsonite, Lake Superior Agates and Jasper.

 This is Thomsonite found along Lake Superior.

This is Copper and Malachite found at the Central Mine in the mine dump on HY 41.


This is Copper From the Central mine south of the Delaware Mine. They say that in about five more years this Mine Dump will be gone for ever because the county is crushing the tailings for road gravel. I will miss this pile for every time we go. We get a 5 quart pail full of Copper specimens.

Here is the picture of the Central Mine Dump.
