Fears were entertained that the supply of charcoal would fall short, but with extraordinary exertions, they now have another set of kilns ready, and the supply will be kept up.Escanaba Tribune1870
Colliers manufactured charcoal to fuel the furnaces at a row of kilns, like this reconstruction. The company also operated kilns elsewhere on the Garden Peninsula and contracted with private operators to provide charcoal. By the mid-1880s, more than eighty kilns were in operation within ten miles of Fayette.
