This page has a total of 2 images, as of 23.06.2022 (18:36:04).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This view is looking at the Wild Horse Mill, or the R. E. A. and A. as it also been named in places. This is located on the north slope of Bull Hill, it is the Gleason shaft of the Wild Horse mine which is the surface structures shown here at the mill, while the original Wild Horse shaft with the horse painted on the side is outside this cropped view at left. Mill was one of the earlier Cyanide Mill operations and seems to have been successful for the most part.
   I am not certain which Shaft House is seen against the Sky, on top of Bull Hill almost, as in that area the claims really overlap each other making it a nightmare trying to figure out who has what structure, but indications are that it might be the Grotto claim holding that structure. So, until I have proof it is not the Grotto, I am calling this the Grotto.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment.

This view is from Midway along the High Line, or Vista Grande as it also was known as with the end balloon-loop or terminal of the Golden Circle Railroad. It shows a view up Bull Hill towards the Wild Horse Mine at the left and the Gleason Mine at the right. Both part of the Wild Horse Group where the Gleason is known as the Main Shaft, as it is a 3-compartment shaft made on the Bertha lode claim, and was supposed to be connected with a transportation tunnel all the way down to the mill of same company, which never happened.
  Wild Horse on the other hand was a 2-compartment shaft, and had extensive workings as seen on the dumps of the mine as seen on the left-hand side of this view. Dating this view is not easy, it was possible taken winter of 1900, hard to tell.
  I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was gray-toned, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes for the moment.
