Empire Mine presentation set
MARQUETTE — Mining engineer and local author, Allan Koski, will present an online slide show featuring his recent book release: “Empire Mine and the Cascade Range.” The book tells the story of life on the Iron Range through written voices, images and detailed events from 1844 to 2016, the idling of the Empire Mine.
Recently retired from Cleveland-Cliffs after a 44-year career primarily at the Empire Mine, Koski has authored numerous professional papers and published articles, including a previous book. He is chairperson of the advisory board at the Michigan Iron Industry Museum appointed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, in the seat representing Michigan’s Mineral Industry.
During his presentation, Koski will review the life span of the Empire Mine in the context of mining history on the Marquette Range, focusing on several important events that shaped the Iron Range.
