Arthur M. Anderson departing Duluth

The Kaye E. Barker has been making quick trips to Taconite Harbor. She left yesterday to take a cargo of coal to Marquette. The Arthur M. Anderson will be here today with an even quicker trip to deliver coal. After discharging a cargo of limestone, it will load about 19,000 tons of coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior and deliver it about a mile away at the Graymont Superior plant, formerly the Cutler dock. The coal is used there to fire up kilns that make lime using limestone discharged by other boats coming up from the lower lakes. When completed, the Anderson will return to Midwest Energy to load 18,000 tons of coal for Marquette, Michigan. Photo taken on April 17, 2008
