Michigan Gold & Silver: The Lake Superior Connection

Maritime History on Tap presents Dan Fountain’s Michigan Gold & Silver: The Lake Superior Connection

The Marquette Maritime Museum’s Maritime History on Tap series presents “Michigan Gold & Silver: The Lake Superior Connection.” Dan Fountain presents tales of pioneer explorers looking for silver and gold in the wilds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  Set in the 19th Century, these explorations were largely influenced by Lake Superior.  In turn, the development of the mining industry of the entire Lake Superior region was shaped by some of these Michigan pioneers.  Learn about the prospectors, investors, Great Lakes captains, inventors and swindlers who were part of this colorful era.
