Millar (page images at HathiTrust; US access only). Grant has 66 identified mines listed in The Diggings™. The most commonly listed primary commodities in Grant mines are Zinc, Lead, and the time these mines were surveyed, 2 mines in Grant were observed to have ore mineralization in an outcrop, shallow pit, or isolated drill hole—known as an occurance mine.

1 Grant has 3 prospect mines. 2 61 mines were in production at the time. Geologic investigations were begun in the Iowa portion of the Wisconsin-Illinois-Iowa zinc-lead district to appraise its potentialities: (1) for zinc ore in strata that elsewhere in the mining district contain large zinc ore bodies and (2) for lead and zinc deposits of the type that were mined extensively in Dubuque County, Iowa, during the 19th century.

Later plat maps don’t show it, but that earliest plat map shows the “Crow Branch Diggings” exactly here. Knut proclaimed himself a miner in on the U.S.

Census, and his Union army induction a few years later also has him as a miner. Obviously, Knut was one of the lead miners working the Crow Branch Mine in the s to early s. Wisconsin has 1, identified mines listed in The Diggings™.

In the early nineteenth century, Wisconsin lead mining was more promising and attractive to potential settlers than either the fur trade or farming. Full text of "The Wisconsin archeologist" See other formats Vol.

In Wisconsin, lead poisoning is most often linked to lead in the paint and varnish in our older homes. We say lead poisoning is typically a housing-based disease. Lead poisoning is caused by swallowing or breathing in dust from lead-based paint in older homes. Maps showing the aftermath of lead and zinc mining in Southwest Wisconsin became available in early October.

The maps build on digitized information about mine shafts, open-pit mines, smelters, abandoned rail lines and other features from the year history of mining for lead and zinc in Green, Lafayette, Grant and Iowa counties. ri / lincoln, f. / crow branch lead-zinc diggins and vicinity, grant county, wisconsin,6 pages, pc, $ 6 ri / lincoln, f.

CAPITAL CRIMES Grant County in its earlier and middle-age history was the abode of many representatives of the rougher elements of society, drawn hither by the mines and its proximity to the Mississippi, that famous water-way which served for many years previous to the war as a promulgator of vice as well as a pathway of commerce.

It is in Wisconsin’s Driftless Area, hence glacial sediments are sparse and the landscape is dominated by bedrock, locally.
