"Martin Frobisher was an English seaman who made three voyages to the New World to look for the Northwest Passage. All landed in northeastern Canada, around today's Resolution Island and Frobisher Bay. On his second voyage, Frobisher found what he thought was gold ore and carried it home on three ships, where initial assaying determined it to be worth a profit of £ 5.1 per ton. Encouraged, Frobisher returned to Canada with an even larger fleet and dug several mines around Frobisher Bay.".Sabin, 25998; OCLC Number: 68939702.FROBISHER (Martin). Drie Seldsame Scheeps-Togten.
