Central Mine, MI - Ruins and Tailings

Central Mine was the most productive of all the fissure deposit mines, producing nearly 52 million pounds of copper before playing out. After 44 years of operation, the mining operation closed on July 29, 1898, and the town of Central became a ghost town. Today there are 13 houses and a church still standing, with visitors welcome to tour the town, which is complete with a visitors information center with audio displays and maps.
