Noble Odyssey recently produced a film entitled "America's Ancient Industry-Copper-The Search." This film is based on Noble Odyssey's research work of this industry that was in the Great Lakes 8,000 to 3,000 years ago. As Mr. Clyburn explained, "The copper industry ended when man was able to make fire hot enough to make iron. There are mines in the Michigan's Upper Peninsula that date back to this period and 3,000 years ago the workers left their tools and walked away. We are looking underwater for wreckage from that time period. I have already located underwater tree stumps that date back to 7,000 years so finding wreckage of that period is possible. This film will be released in 2022."
