This rusty old partially sunken machine know as Quincy Dredge No.2 is located in Torch Lake near Hubble, MI. This machine was used to reclaim sand that was put in the lake from an earlier stamping method used to extract copper from rock. Improvements in mining technology helped with extracting copper left in these sand deposits. This dredge was originally owned by the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company and was later purchased by the Quincy Mining Company. The dredge sank at its current resting location during the winter of 1968.
