Mine: Osceola Mine, MI

The Osceola Mine was located just southwest of Calumet on the Calumet Conglomerate in Houghton County. It was first worked in 1877. In total, there were 12 shafts for this mine and the nearby Old Osceola Mine. It was a profitable operation over the years. The mill for this mine was located in Hubbell.

The company, along with the Tamarack Mining company announced plans to build a new coal and merchandise dock at Dollar Bay. The new dock will entail a longer rail haul to the mines, but will save charges of 10 to 50 cents a ton now made by the Calumet & Hecla Co. through the Torch Lake Canal on all cargoes going to Lake Linden.
