  This is from a photograph of the Anaconda lode as seen in an open-cut in July, 1897. The lode at this place forms a part of an andesite dike traversing the breccia. The dike exhibits a multiplication of fractures parallel to its walls, and along these lines of cleavage there occur seams of quartz and fluorite carrying tellurides.
  In the surface workings, the gold liberated from the tellurides occurred pseudomorphic after sylvanite, distributed in yellow patches amid purple fluorite, affording specimens of great beauty.

   This is a great view of the massive Shaft Structure of the Mary McKinney Mine, here marked as Mary McKinney Mining Company, but one also see part of their Coal House at the right-hand side and even their Office can be glimpsed at the right-hand edge with its darker sidewall and a single window visible. Looking at the structure it has had some years to it as the roof is starting to look not that nice.
   Of other things to mentioned, the Ore-House of the Anaconda Mine is visible about 1/7 in from right-hand side and about halfway up from bottom, with the until not too many years ago Blacksmith Structure partly visible behind it and covered to much by the smokestack of the Coal House of the Mary McKinney.
   The Roadbed of the Midland Terminal is also just behind the Anaconda Orehouse, while the Low Line roadbed can be seen about 1/5 down from the top in upper right area. The High Line/Short Line grade up Gold Hill is also partly visible almost into the sky area, also in upper right area. In the foreground some M.T. railroad Gondola cars are visible, but the only one I feel I see number off is the one most to the left which is numbered 171, which appeared quite nice on my 1200dpi scan.

I've seen this image used three times, for this card and another postcard where there are a couple of extra millimeters visible on the right-hand side, plus I've seen it used in a postcard folder.
   The view is from the railroad side of the Mary McKinney mine, showing several box cars parked on sidings nearby and at the mine itself. It also shows part of Anaconda at right-hand side about 1/3 up from bottom, the part that survived the 1904 fire, as I see no signs of structures at left side of image, and I believe there should been visible something there if the town was still there.
   The tracks in the foreground belong to the Midland Terminal, but the Mary McKinney mine was once served by dual gauge as the F. & C.C was also having a spur to the mine, entering in from left-hand side, running parallel with the Shaft House to serve that and the coal bins at the power plant seen with all those smokestacks to the right of the shaft-house.
   Behind the smokestacks of the Power House of the Mary McKinney you can see the Ore House of the Anaconda Mine, located down by the F. & C.C. yard in Anaconda, but image is too bad to really make out any details. Which is sad, as up on Gold Hill seen in the background, there is seen the Shaft House of the Anchoria-Leland about 1/4 in from right-hand side and about same from top, with the Ore-House and trestle of the Lexington Mine seen just to the right of the Anchoria-Leland.
   Or even more sad, there is visible a mill on the hill side above the Low Line grade, seen about  1/3 down from top and 1/7 in from right-hand side, a mill I believe might be known as Anaconda Mill, but I might be mistaken where that mill was located as info been a little scarce, but it fit the location of west slope Gold Hill.

This is not the best view of this area, due to the print type of process behind this postcard. It will never scan well and details are lost to the dots making up the image. But, it does show yet another image that at least at one time did exist out there as a negative, with several mines visible. Also, we see what appears to still be left standing two structures down in what once was the town of Anaconda – seen about center nearly at bottom edge – one with a false front type towards left.
* In the foreground, along bottom part, is structures belonging to the Anaconda Mine, I think the long surviving Blacksmith shed is the one at lower right-hand corner.
* The Mary McKinney Mine is seen about 1/3 down from top and covers about the left part of this image, from center where the large/massive Shaft House is seen with its big dump and large crib-wall down towards the road that used to be the F. & C.C. roadbed.
* The Katinka Mine, often seen named as the Chicken Hawk Mine – even if most of the Chicken Hawk claim is as far as I can tell on the other side of Guyot Hill – is seen about 1/3 in from right-hand side quite near top of the card with the top of Guyot Hill behind it. It possible may also lay on another claim, but at time of writing [29.05.2017] I just go with what my old USGS map with numbered mines on them gives me of info, one day I may learn more/better info and will fix it then.
* Not sure what mining operation is seen above the Mary McKinney and to the left of the Katinka, may be same mine operation, some other mine, so, for time being, I just leave it be.

This is a nice view, and I found it quite amazing to see that even by 1968 these mine structures, ore houses and such of the Anaconda Mine was still standing, but 40 more years passing by and none is left except Blacksmith when I did visit the area, and now that too had to yield for the open pit mine...
   The Road in front of the Ore-House was the former F. & C.C. roadbed, which turned into a road when that railroad was gone, and which was later the main road between Victor and Cripple Creek towns, but today all this is gone, road and everything.
   Closest to the road is the Anaconda mine Orehouse, with the Blacksmith and its cupola visible behind it, and to the right is what appears to be a tunnel opening and a shed like structure. Behind the structures is the former roadbed of the Midland Terminal seen, coming from left-hand side on a small fill, and entering a cut behind the shed/possible powerplant structure, before leaving the image at the right-hand side, all this at about middle top/down.

Scene at the Anaconda Mine in Squaw Gulch with an Ore Bin and an Ore House Seen in Foreground.
Photographer [Date]:
Unknown
Description:
Due to the visibility of the Low Line grade in the background, about 1/4 down from the top on the right and 1/7 on the left side of this image, this dates to 1900 or later. It is an interesting view as it shows an ore bin in front with a car along the F. & C.C. spotted under it, also boxcars alongside the ore house are seen in this view. Quite a good look at the Anaconda mine structures as well, and in background right part of upper Anaconda town is seen as well.

This view from an unmarked Stereoview is showing the town of Anaconda with the School House and part of the Hartzell Mill in the foreground left. In the background is Gold hill and some of its mines, while the town itself is located near the Anaconda mine. Anaconda mine is about 1/3 down from the top and about middle-of-view in the left/right direction. About halfway up on the left side is the Ore-house of the Blue Bell mine just above the school house cupola.
