Margaretha Green bound for India

The Dutch flagged Margaretha Green came in from the anchorage on Monday morning and began to load parts of a ball mill brought down here from Hoyt Lakes and on its way to India. Above, the Margaretha Green’s holds are open; you can see one crane from the ship turned over the side ready to hoist one of the larger parts into the ship. Another crane’s cable hangs down the middle, and, off the bow of the ship, the Mesabi Miner was pulling into the Murphy Oil dock for fuel. After that, the boat went over to the CN dock to load taconite. It will leave this morning; the Margaretha Green may be here for a week.
