Quincy Copper Smelter (United States)

From the Mining Journal Sept. 2008.

HANCOCK - The Hancock City Council Wednesday made a pledge to contribute $5,000 to the efforts to stabilize the Quincy Smelting Works, with the intention that it will be made safe for visits from the public.

During the council's regular meeting, Kim Hoagland, president of the Keweenaw National Historical Park Advisory Council, KNHP Superintendent Jim Corless and Scott See, Advisory Commission fund development director, spoke to the council about the need for the $5,000 donation.

Hoagland said if approved by the council the donation would go to Copper Country Preservation Inc., which is a not-for-profit corporation created by the Advisory Commission to educate people about the park and its mission to preserve and interpret the copper mining experience in the Keweenaw Peninsula. It also has the ability to collect monetary donations and receive and sell property.

Hoagland said it may be possible that federal funding will be available for the smelter project.
