The old Franklin mine is surrounded on three sides by the Quincy location, which has cut off the Franklin Mining Company from following the lode beyond. Openings in the original mine, embracing 160 acres, were made in the Pewabic lode. The properties of the company also include the Franklin Junior mine of 1,359 acres, which was opened in 1860 as the Albany & Boston mine and bought by the present proprietors in 1895; as well as surface rights to an additional quarter-section, a millsite of nearly 200 acres at Grosse Pointe and one mile of frontage on Portage lake. The total output of the company in 1909 was 1,615,556 pounds of copper.
