  Special Police Badge Verona Mining Company Back.jpg - SPECIAL POLICE BADGE VERONA MINING COMPANY - Brass special police badge for the Verona Mining Company, 2 3/8 in by 1 3/4 in [The Verona Mining Company, a subsidiary of the Pickands, Mather and Company, was formed in the latter part of the 1890s with its main business office in the Western Reserve Building in Cleveland, Ohio.  Pickands, Mather and Company, dealing in pig iron and iron ore, was co-founded in 1883 by Samuel Mather, James Pickands and Jay C. Morse.  As of 1901, the Verona Mining Company was the operator of Pickens Mather iron mines on the Menominee range including the Verona, Vivian, Caspian, and Baltic mines as well as the Mikado mine on the Gogebic range.  The Menominee Range is situated mainly in the valley of the Menominee River, which lies on the boundary between the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin. The iron located here was known before the Civil War, but mining dates back only to the 1870s.  The Gogebic range is an elongated area of iron ore deposits in northern Michigan and Wisconsin extending east from Lake Namakagon in Wisconsin to Lake Gogebic in Michigan for almost 80 miles. Though long, it is only about a half mile wide. At the time Samuel Mather was president of the Verona Mining Company with Walter Scranton as vice president, H. S. Haselton as secretary and H. G. Dalton as treasurer.  Over the next several years, the Verona Mining Company continued to operate iron mines for Pickands Mather that included the Fogarty, Barras, Bengal, Berkshire, Buck Group, Carlson, DeGrasse and Zimmerman mines.  Pickands Mather based out of Cleveland, Ohio went on to become a major mining and shipping firm supplying iron ore and coal to the steel industry with one of the largest fleets of freight carriers on the Great Lakes. In 1973, Pickands, Mather and Company became part of Moore McCormack Resources, Inc.  Moore McCormack sold its Pickands Mather stock to Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. in 1986.]
