Over its 120 years of operation, the Quincy Mining Company (QMC) was one of the largest and most profitable copper operations in the world. From sinking its first shaft in 1846, to the closure of its copper-smelting facility in 1971, the QMC built and operated mining, milling, and smelting works to extract and refine copper from vast deposits near Hancock, Michigan. The Houghton Rotary Club has organized a Copper Mining Heritage Tour for Saturday, August 8, 2020, from 9 am to 3 pm. On this very special day, attendees will receive access to, and expert interpretation of, five Quincy Mining Company sites that typically aren’t available to visitors. Tours include:

  • Quincy Mine Surface Tour
  • Quincy Mine Engine (Railroad) House
  • Quincy Mine Company Buildings
  • Quincy Mill Site and Dredge (Mason)
  • Quincy Smelting Works (Ripley)
