ASH BED MINING CO.
A corporation formed under the laws of Michigan in 1880. The company owns a copper tract in Keweenaw County, Mich. The mine, which is near that of the Arnold Mining Co., was originally known as the Petherick mine, and was reorganized under the present title in 1880. The old company's property was foreclosed and sold, being purchased by the present company. The name is derived from the so-called "ash bed" or amygdaloid vein of copper- bearing ore found in the copper range of upper Michigan. Stock Par $25 Authorized, $1,000,000 Issued, $1,000,000
