Built by the Quincy Mining Company & operated till 1972, the Quincy Smelter used heat and chemical processes to turn copper ore from 13 local mines into ingots. The ingots were then sold and shipped to factories where they were turned into products such as copper wire or tubing. This is the only copper smelter remaining in the Lake Superior region.
