The Quincy Mine is an extensive set of copper mines located near Hancock, Michigan. The mine was owned by the Quincy Mining Company and operated between 1846 and 1945, although some activities continued through the 1970s. The Quincy Mine was known as "Old Reliable," as the Quincy Mine Company paid a dividend to investors every year from 1868 through 1920.
In order to get this photo I had to walk on a snow mobile trail. If you got off the trail packed down by the snow mobiles, the snow was about 3 feet deep. Fortunately, I am taller than 3 feet, but it would have been a challenging situation.
