I assume this sign used to sit near the highway that snakes around the mine and town.
Looking out from my perch close to the Kam toward the Ogilvie head house. To the left is a newer concrete annex, probably built in the years it bore the name Saskatchewan Pool 8.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.
Rubber dock boots still sits under the desk in the dock office, near keys to rusted locks and files of fired employees.
In the soft wood of the machine, an employee left their mark.
Because there’s no Port-a-John underground.
From the slip where grain boats would tie for loading and unloading, the unloader juts in a modernist-architectural way that is oddly visibly satisfying. Inside that white building is the retracted boat unloader, more or less a long and sturdy conveyor attached to a joint and crane motor. There used to be four loaders that looked like simple tubes with cranes and ropes attached hanging from this side of the elevator. All that remains of those is one fixture on the white building (not visible here) and the frame of one on the elevator proper, visible in the upper-middle of this image, to the right of the unloader apparatus.
The last tailings on a broken conveyor belt.
A diesel crane and conveyor belt tripper are the major pieces of equipment that dominate the dock.
