American Republic here with limestone

The American Republic, seen above entering the Duluth ship canal last January, loaded limestone in Calcite, Michigan and is expected here today to discharge that cargo before going up to Silver Bay to load iron ore pellets. It will then go to Cleveland to discharge part of the cargo at the Cleveland Bulk Terminal at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River. From there, the boat will go up the river to Mittal Steel to discharge the remaining pellets.
