The Gratiot Mine was opened by the Seneca Mining Company in 1910 to mine the highly profitable Kearsarge Lode. This mine is actually the Seneca No. 2 shaft but is referred to in most books as the Gratiot. In 1945, Calumet and Hecla Mining Company purchased the Gratiot Mine and operated it until 1966 when it ceased operation. Several minerals can be found at the rock piles that still exist, including copper, silver, epidote, prehnite, domeykite, and algodonite.
