For many years, paint ore has been shipped off the old stockpile at the Peterson Mine (closed) in Bessemer. Once the Wisconsin and Michigan was abandoned the ore had been trucked to the siding at Thomaston and hauled out over the White Pine Sub to Marengo Jct. and now has found it's way on the E&LS it looks. I have seen as many as 15 loads shipped at one time on the White Pine sub, this was late in Oct. of last year. I was wondering what was happening with the ore since the White Pine sub was taken out of service.
