    Have not been in that area. Tempting but i,d get in trouble! Float copper exists around,some areas up there have silver too. Have heard firsthand accounts and read and watch alot on it. Would be a neat spot to tour. Too bad so many tons of hammers were discarded and modern mining followed the works of old(due to their knowing where copper was to be found and worked it) but there are still glimpses. Its unique traits being traceable help i.d. it over the water ways to other countries indeed as well as the Americas. what little has been accounted for here and the cache areas discovered over a easterly route from source suggest at least a east coast pre Columbus market. But the shear volume theory suggests over seas market(s).
    From the evidence suggesting how copper was extracted and 500,000 est. Lbs extracted. With the climate allowing seasonal work and no evidence of habitation,(one tentative site with charcoal in pits) it would have taken a very long time.

    Ok. So what side of the states did man occupy first? East of west. & what is the current theory on the vikings arriving long before Columbus?
