Silver Bay is on the North Shore of Lake Superior. This marina has 108 slips for boats up to 60' long. In 1946 Reserve Mining Company started building a taconite processing plant here and the town of Silver Bay was founded in 1954. Silver Bay's population dropped from 2,917 in 1980 to 1,894 in 1990 as people left for work elsewhere. In the spring of 1989, two companies showed a strong interest in acquiring Reserve. A bidding war took place between Cyprus Minerals of Denver, Colorado, and Cleveland Cliffs of Cleveland, Ohio. Even though Cliffs topped the Cyprus offer by $1 million, the bankruptcy judge awarded the $680 million plant to Cyprus. After spending $30 million for repairs and renovations, the renamed Cyprus North Shore Mining Company began making pellets again. In the fall of 1994, Cyprus North Shore Mining was sold to Cleveland Cliffs.
