Levers and indicators to control and track the path of mine cars moving up and down the mine shaft. Note the mine depth indicators would trace paper… this is because the steel cables stretch out over time, so the line length changes with the years.
I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
The oldest part of this mill had a wooden roof that rotted away long ago. Slowly, rust is dulling the edge on every cog left behind.
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.
One of two projectors, still set to run old 3D flicks.
Carvings on the back of a barracks building.
I love the ‘hats’ on the top of the SWP-4 headhouse. FP-100C.
One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
Beside the shaft building are two fans on skids, indicating they were used underground.
