|A miner works at the counter of a lamp room at the Sunday Lake Mine. Iron ore was discovered at the site of the Sunday Lake Mine in the Gogebic district near Wakefield, Michigan in 1882. The Mine was operated by Pickands, Mather and Company. Pickands, Mather and Company was established in 1883 as an iron mining and shipping firm with interests in the Lake Superior region. It was one of the large mining companies that consolidated smaller properties in the Michigan iron ranges in the early 1900s. The Company became one of the largest iron ore companies in the US.
