My buddy from Bark River gave me a nice sample. It is almost 8 in long and almost 1 and a half in in diameter. Ya I hear that most of the copper runs about 20 percent silver.What I am really interested in are artifacts made from Native copper.My buddy has found some. Would be nice to know how old and who made them.I am going to detect all the sites that I have found for copper or any metal as far as that goes. The French I do know had trade arrowheads that they traded to the tribes.When I was a kid in Tucson Arizona, I used to hunt for seashell braceletts. While on one hunt I picked up a a piece of copper rolled into a ball and it had something rattling around inside. I must have packed it for 3 quarter a mi and got tired of carrying it so I tossed it. About a year or so later I came across a book about HoHokum Tribes who Lived through out that Part of Arizona and don't you know there was a picture of the same type of copper bell . Well I had a Compass 77b detector which was my first one.Any way I returned to the spot that I had tossed  the bell but never did find it.I must have searched for it at least 20 times to no avail. From then on if I find some thing odd I put in the odd pile till I figure out what it is. I did not mean to ramble on just thought some one would find this interesting. Our sow is almost gone and yesterday I got a load of pay dirt that I have to clean up..   Later   Frank C

Copper from Northern Michigan was traded by native American tribes, ending up as artifacts all over the Midwest and eastern portions of the country.  Later, when the French arrived, they also were involved in the process.  I'm not to sure about copper deposits in Mich being 20% silver. That number might be a little high.

Copper artifacts have been found on Isle Royale island dating back to 800AD. It is a national park now and no detecting allowed.

20% silver....  Sounds too high like beach pirate mentioned.
