The ‘working’ part of the furnaces are about a story above ground level, so the catwalks snake above the tree line.
SWP4-A on the left and Viterra C on the right in a 90-degree panorama.
I’ll remember the neon glow fondly.
Heavy steel doors to isolate the underground magnetic separation mill from Eagle Mine’s main tunnel.
Some small candles light one of the few surviving tunnels that once linked buildings on the campus with the steam plant. In winter, it was common for patients to be transported through these to avoid the cold, and during the Cold War these served as nuclear fallout shelters.
This is a great example of a combination rock house; the silos below used to fill trains with ore dropped from mine cars pulled to the top of the structure.
Furnace #6; its catwalk and tapway. Note the lever-operated gutter-blockers.
Above the old machine shop is a packing building and a crate of cardboard label rolls.
A side view of the oven pusher from the ground. The tallest coal bunker looks tiny in the distance, though on the scale of the factory it’s practically on top of me as I’m taking the picture.
