Cason J. Callaway loading sinter

The Cason J. Callaway is expected in port today with limestone loaded in Calcite, Michigan. After discharging that cargo at the CN dock in West Duluth, it will move over to the Hallett dock to load sinter. Above, Hallett personnel are using two front end loaders to feed two conveyors going directly into 2 Callaway cargo holds last July. At right, one of the loaders is dumping sinter into a hopper at the base of one of the conveyors. The second conveyor can be seen at the left. The bow of the Callaway is in the background. Sinter is low grade iron ore material that is found at the end of a pellet run and is brought down from Iron Range taconite mines by train. Photo taken on July 27, 2006.
