February 13, 1874. Phoenix Mine, Phoenix, Keweenaw Co. - Dynamite explosion - 6 fatalities

January 4, 1904. Shipments of mass and barrel copper from the Phoenix mine are going to the Portage Lake smelters over the Copper Range railroad by way of Calumet. The Phoenix is rich in heavier grades and copper. Results from the stamp rock are very hood also, and the mine is making a very good showing. Mineral and mass  and barrel copper from the mine are necessarily hauled to Calumet, as there is no railroad to the Phoenix location. On the return trip,  the teams take mine supplies. [DFP-1904-0104]
