Industrial Heritage Sand


Champion Stamp Mill Ruins, Freda, MI

Leo Kenney

   Remnants of industry and civilizations are often found as grains in sands. Coal chunks from power plants, paint chips from road paint, brick fragments from old chimneys, rusted steel shot from sandblasting sites, and colorful glass fragments.  Other sands contain the waste material from mines or slag from ore smelting operations. Magnification reveals these grains.
