Air Compressor

There is a cool old air compressor in the corner of the powerhouse.

Belden Fan

This belt-run axle ran a turbine (now gone) to blow fresh air into the mine.

Shop

The workshop sat below the main working floor and had serious power going to it.

Floatation Floor

These machines circulated water through the powder from the ball mills. Gold and silver is heavier than gravel, so it sinks while the junk rock floats.

Unravelled

The power pulley that ran air compressors straight off of the steam plant’s axel.

Frick

Two small generators connected to a Frick steam engine.

Groud Floor

A better view of the belt system that drives all the machinery in the plant.

Parts Room

The parts room had the best light in the whole plant.
