This is an example of the equipment that was originally manufactured at Barcol.
A skyway 100 feet above this office crumbled one day. This is what happened when those two met. High-impact love.
Kate for scale. Powder that passed the floatation level was flowed over sluice tables, another mass-based way of separating gold. I’ve never seen so many of these in one place. Though it was a hardrock mine, it worked more like a placer mine.

A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.

The mostly-empty distilling room is easy to spot from the outside because of the distinctive round window.
