dc.description.abstractThe Caspian Mine was an underground iron mine near Caspian in the Menominee Range, Michigan. The Mine opened in 1903 and was worked to a depth of over 500 feet. By the 1950s the Mine was closed and had flooded. The Caspian was operated by the Verona Mining Company for 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.
