From the top of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Keweenaw Peninsula extends further out into Lake Superior for 60 miles. Here, mid 19th century miners rediscovered the world's largest deposit of pure copper. The copper, found on a ridge that extends all the way up the peninsula, was so pure early American Natives used it straight from the ground to make beads, tools and ornaments.
