									COPPER
   How glaciers affected copper
 A glacier carried copper along and
  deposited it elsewhere as the glacier melted.
 Float copper is a chunk of glacier, carried
  along and deposited else where as the
  glacier melted.
            First miners
        How they used copper
 American Indians
 They used copper to make tools
        Where copper is found
           First Geologist
 Copper is found in the counties, Keweenaw,
  Houghton, and Ontonagon in the Western
  Upper Peninsula.
 The first state geologist was Douglass
  Houghton.
 Copper Rush and the growth
   of the Upper Peninsula
The copper rush began in 1843 in the
  county Keweenaw.
Jobs brought people to the Upper
  Peninsula.
 The copper strike and who is Annie
            Clemenc?
 The mine owners were cutting to much so
  the workers had to work more. Then they
  went on strike. It lasted ten months.
 Annie Clemenc led the march and held the
  flag.
   Copper, yesterday and today
 Michigan produced the most copper in
  1916.
 Copper mining stopped in 1997 because
  other states could mine it cheaper mostly in
  the west. The mines were not as deep in the
  ground so it was faster to mine. The last
  mine was the white pine mine.
           Natural Resource
         Capital Resources used
         Human Resources used
 A Natural Resource is something that nature
  makes and a human can’t.
 A Capital Resource is a machine that does
  all the work and makes products.
 A Human Resource is a person who
  makes the products or the workers (miner).
                Fun Facts
 We thought that the glaciers that carried
  copper were cool.
 We also thought that since there wasn’t any
  more copper mining it was weird that we
  couldn’t see copper being mined.
