dc.description.abstractA stench injector is an alarm device that releases strong-smelling gases, and is used to warn workers. The Buck Mine was an underground iron mine in Iron County, Michigan. The Mine opened in 1922 as a consolidated operation with two other mines. Additional mines were added later to form the Buck Group. The Buck Mine reached a depth of about 750 feet. The Group was operated by Verona Mining Company for Pickands, Mather and Company. Pickands, Mather and Company was established in 1883 as an iron mining and shipping firm with interests in the Lake Superior region. It was one of the large mining companies that consolidated smaller properties in the Michigan iron ranges in the early 1900s. The Company became one of the largest iron ore companies in the US.
