This piece of float copper was dredged from the Keweenaw Waterway, Michigan, by the hydraulic dredge "New Jersey"; on May 27, 1932, while working under contract with the United States Engineers Office, Duluth. It was presented to the office by the contractor, the Zenith Dredge Company.
Float copper is native metallica copper, almost chemically pure, which has been dislodged and transported by glacial action. This piece weighs 490 pounds and fragments of this size are rare.
