Cant' give you the exact date they began or when they quit, or where the copper concentrate was going to, but here is a photo of the Houghton crew switching two cars of concentrate in May of 1976 . . . .
This short experiment was big news back then, and I can remember seeing the sign at the entrance of the new mine whenever I drove north on US41. It was just before the "Hut" restaurant, on the left.
