Established in 1846, Copper Falls mine was a collection of several copper mine shafts and adits (definition below). Owl Creek -- in what was once one of the richest fissure veins in the Keweenaw -- glides down to form many waterfalls, one of which is the Copper Falls.

Citing Wikipedia, an adit is an entrance to an underground mine which is horizontal or nearly horizontal, by which the mine can be entered, drained of water, ventilated, and minerals extracted at the lowest convenient level.

Thanks be to
