Here, the concentrated gold (and silver, and zinc, I would guess) would be loaded into trucks bound for the smelter.
Different doors for different vehicles, I would guess. White Pine Mine used tire-based vehicles, rather than track-based, making it pretty different than other mines I’ve been to.
My favorite shot of the 17-story Art Deco office tower attached to the train station.
On the left is the broken glass room that contains the controls for the cable spool, now gone, that sat in the metal shell on the right. The stairs led down to the hoisting engine itself. You can make out the slits where the cable ran up to the headframe tower through the gaping archway.

Looking across the mountain tramway from an abandoned house in Gilman.
This is the former air compressor house–one of them, at least–which turned steam power into air power to drive machinery across the production line.
Looking from the main shop into the boiler shop, one of three attached buildings that specialized in certain repairs. One thing that architectural photographers have to work with is an elongated “magic hour” with ideal shadowing and coloring–this photo is a result of that lighting.
