Eagle Mine offers free public tours this summer
CHAMPION, Mich. (WLUC) - Eagle Mine will begin hosting their summer tours on Thursday, June 15.
Free public tours of Eagle Mine and the Humboldt Mill will take place throughout the summer.
Tours at Eagle Mine will start at 9 a.m. at the Information Center in downtown Marquette. From there, participants will be transported to the mine site for a surface tour and a stop at the Water Treatment Plant. The mine tour does not include an underground component.
Social Performance Adviser for Eagle Mine, Meagen Morrison, said this is an opportunity to show the public what happens in their backyard.
“It’s just a way for us to be able to bring the public in and really show off the operation that we have,” Morrison said. “The workforce is really proud of what they built at Eagle Mine and the Humboldt Mill so, we want to provide an opportunity to share that with the community and answer any questions and concerns that they have and be able to see the operation first-hand.”
The mill tour will begin at 10 a.m. and participants will meet at the mill site. The tour is a walking tour throughout various areas of the mill.
The final mill tour will be Sept. 7, and the final mine tour will be available until Sept. 14.
Participants must be 13 years or older and an adult must accompany those under 18.
Both tours require reservations which can be booked here. For more information, please call the Eagle Mine Information Center at (906) 273-1550.
