Hull Rust Mahoning pit in Hibbing, MN. This land would have looked similar to northern Wisconsin without mining. Ashland County Board members Charles Ortman and Photographer Joel Austin visited the site. Austin said, “This picture was taken on an observation platform that was out in a kind of peninsula sticking out into the pit. There was pit on all sides of me except straight behind. I would guess something like 270 degrees. It’s hard to convey in a photograph. This one is just a small chunk of it.”
