An underground copper mine located between Allouez and Ahmeek, MI. The Kingston Mine was opened by Calumet & Hecla on the Kearsarge Conglomerate in 1964, making it the last mine shaft opened by C&H. The mine consisted of one incline shaft that was worked to the 12th level. The mine closed in 1968 due to a labor strike. Specimens from Kingston include copper, silver, cuprite, and epidote.
