The Bumblebee Mine was set off from the original Ontonagon Mine property and may have been part of the Rockland Mining Company as the location is close to the Rockland Mine. Beyond this, little is known of the actual mining operations or dates of operation of the Bumblebee. Today the rock piles are mostly gone; however, what does remain often rewards the collector with small copper crystals and colourful datolite nodules.
