The Empire mine annually produces 8 million tons of iron ore pellets. These pellets travel by rail to Marquette and Escanaba where they are shipped by Great Lakes ore carriers to steel mills in the United States and Canada. The Empire mine has produced more iron ore pellets than any other iron mine in the history of Michigan and is among the leaders in North America.
