Entrance to the East Adit

Entrance to the East Adit

This image is copyrighted. Unauthorized reproduction prohibited.

This is a photo of the Quincy Mine East Adit, located in the city of Hancock, Michigan. The adit was constructed in 1892 solely as a water drain for the mine; no men or materials ever used this entrance during the mining days. The original size of the adit was 5 ft. high and 3 ft. wide. Today the adit is much larger, thanks to the Michigan Tech mining engineering students in the mid 70's blasting out the adit during an experimental mining study. Currently, the adit is used for guided underground mine tours of the Quincy Mine during the summer months.
