Old copper culture sites have been found in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
Copper was mined by a process called “cold hammering”. First, Native miners lit a fire over copper veins. When it was hot enough, they poured cold water over the rocks. This created cracks in the surrounding rock so the copper could be released.
