Two saltwater ships at the Port Terminal

The Muntgracht arrived Duluth on November 11, 2014, on her first trip to the Twin Ports. Above, she discharged machinery at the Port Terminal that will be loaded onto trucks that will carry it to its final destination in the Twin Cities. Below, the Yulia arrived Duluth on November 7, 2014 to discharge kaolin clay at the Port Terminal. She discharged that same cargo on her first trip here in June, 2013. She will soon depart Duluth to load grain in Thunder Bay.


  1. Kaolin is commonly used to make porcelain, clay-coated paper, and in some paints. I think the clay unloaded there is used for glossy paper at the NewPage Duluth paper mill.

  2. What will the clay be used for?
