America Unearthed: What Happened to the Copper

Saw this program on H2 channel on cable. It was about copper from the UP, Superior region. The program starts out going to IR, features a conversation with Rolf and a trip to the Minong Mines.

I saw this too. His theory was debunked. No conclusive evidence that IR copper was used in the bronze age.
