King Philip Mine, Winona, Houghton Co., Michigan, USA
An underground copper mine consisting of two shafts located in the town of Winona, southeast of Houghton. The King Philip Mining Co. was organized in 1864. Work at the mine was sporadic in nature. In 1911, after the reorganization of the Winona Copper Co., King Philip was absorbed. King Philip, like Winona, worked the Winona Amygdaloid which was thought to be the southern extension of the famous Isle Royale Lode. Minerals found here include copper and datolite.
