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.
Power-up to cool down… would have been nice on the hot day I climbed on top of this machine.
A nice view of the aurora borealis (“Northern Lights”) strong enough to outshine the industrial lighting at the power plant. The lights in the foreground direct ships discharging coal for the station.
One of the three ovens where the powder would be heater to over 2000 degrees… hot enough to fuse iron, but not hot enough to liquify it.
The sign that greets visitors to the ghost town of Colmor. Nothing says ‘welcome’ like birdshot.
The wrought iron staircase for what was the Consumer’s Brewery Brew House, as indicated by very fine cast landings with the company logo. The staircase is in bad condition; someone had run a forklift or something similar into the bottom in addition to copious vandalism and water damage. Holes in the floor, like in the upper-right corner indicate where stainless steel kettles used to be before they were scrapped.
A sign in the desolate cafeteria.
Two counterweighted elevators moved men between the surface, mine, and underground mill.
A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.
