C&H Camelback LocomotiveThe Calumet & Hecla Mining Company was based in Calumet and Laurium. Its original mine complex was between the two towns, but the C&H company ended up purchasing or merging with many other mines in the Copper Range. It was also one of the longest serving mining companies in the region.
