In the summer of 2006 several team members did some preliminary above water trips into an abandoned copper mine in Michigan. After being given a very informative tour of the dry mine, we then made a quick second trip, repelling ourselves down the single shaft that brought us to the water level. Logistics of lighting, the type of gear required, documentation of artifacts, how may dives might be needed, how to transport all the gear down to this area, and when would be the best time of year to start the project were discussed. As more training will be needed by several team members, along with permits etc. tentative plans suggest fall of 2007 or spring of 2008 as a target start date.
