NOTE: In the 1860’s laws were passed and discoveries made that allowed and encouraged a boom in the mining industry in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. These led to a boom in the establishment of mines for various ores which was to have profound effects on shipping on the entire Great Lakes. It is probably no accident that these advertisements all appeared adjacent to the "Marine News" column on a SINGLE DAY in 1864. Many of the mines thus incorporated became famous - and their names will be familiar - as shippers of ores and smelted metals. Note that most of the meetings were on the East Coast.
