The three major iron areas of northern Michigan include the Marquette, Menominee, and Gogebic iron ranges. Of these, the Marquette range remains one of the major iron mining districts of the world. Considered are the history (dating from 1844), the geology, and the mineralogy of the ores (including taconite and jaspilite). -R.S.M.
