Mesabi Miner leaving? Later today, probably

After loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources on Thursday, the Mesabi Miner moved over to the Holcim Cement Dock (formerly St. Lawrence Cement) for maintenance work on the self unloading boom. She is expected to depart later today (March 16, 3012) for Marquette, Michigan. The picture above was taken this morning at 7:11; below 18 minutes earlier.

    WOW! It’s finally here! Thanks for the pictures, Ken! Will she leave thru Duluth Entry or Superior? It seems like forever since she came in for winter lay-up. Happy we are getting started again! It has been a long not winter.
