Is the correct spelling Minesota or Minisota? MK2 06:48, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)

That is the correct spelling. - It was a clerical error when the state charter for the mining company was recorded and it was never corrected.
I hope to expand this topic somewhat as I have a chance, although mineralogy is way out of my comfort zone of what I feel knowledgable enough to write about without embarrassing myself too much. From what I can tell, this article may need to be moved to something like Minesota conglomerate -- a term for the larger formation where the copper was found. While an article specifically about the Minesota Mine would remain here. Perhaps they could be treated together, although there were at least two other mines that worked the same formation. I think there should also be an article about the Ontonagon Boulder, a 500-ton piece of nearly pure native copper!!
Anyhow, I've collected a lot of external links to sources that I'm not quite ready to process yet, so I'm sticking them here so I don't lose them. Anyone should feel free to take advantage of these to improve the article. olderwiser 03:44, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
