The Gold Prince is dead, but its ruins show how over-engineered it once was. Although its foundations were concrete, seen here, the rest of the mill was steel. All of its steel and equipment was removed to fix the Sunnyside Mill in Eureka.
Sometime soon, maybe in early 2016, someone will have this view from their office or condo.
The perimeter fence still holds strong, 50 years after it was put up.
National Mine and its rockhouse (?) as seen from Mammoth Hill. From this angle, I am fairly certain this was a crushing and sorting house. The bottom looks like it has two aerial tram doors as well.
Tornadic fronts duel over the retired missile launcher.
SFAAP’s iconic smokestacks. You’d notice if you drove past this on the highway.
The back of the castle is barely visible through the trees that have grown thick around the walls, making it look so much older.
The Big Dipper brought its friends into view, and the best seat is 80-feet up.
The Duncan House overlooks the Columbus Mill (left) and the Gold Prince Mill ruins (not picture, but to the right). Note the Columbus Mine itself above the mill.
