This page has a total of 7 images, as of 16.07.2019 (10:35:47).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This image is most likely from the long room occupied by the Ropp roasting furnace, conveyors, and cyanide tanks. I wonder if this is a view below the so-called Rabble Machine.

This image is most likely from the long room occupied by the Ropp roasting furnace, conveyors, and cyanide tanks. The tanks are seen to the right, with the so-called Rabble Machine seen partly to the left of the tanks. The rabble is a long, thick steel bar, to the lowest surface of which are attached plates or blades. This bar with teeth is attached to a triangle of iron, bound together by long, flat iron bars, which are curved up at the ends. The machine travels on a small truck fitting on to the rails down the long tramway, around the side and ends of the furnace, drawn by an endless revolving wire rope, connecting the rabbles with one another. So, the procession crawls along till a turntable is reached, opposite the far end of the furnace. The Furnace is seen partly on left side.

This sadly quite bad view shows an Interior View from the Arequa Mill. Appearing in an August 1899 issue this must been photographed before that time and being said to have been erected around 1896/1897 the timespan is not that large. The Article said nothing directly about this view, but I get the feel that this view is showing one of the ends of the so-called Rabble Machine. The wheel looks like the one drawn in Figure 4 in the article this is from, about the Cyanide Mill part of the Arequa Mill.

This sadly quite bad view, not direct made better with my fiddling with it in terms of some coloring, shows how the Arequa Mill lays on the hill as seen from southeast. Appearing in an August 1899 issue this must been photographed before that time and being said to have been erected around 1896/1897 the timespan is not that large.
   Beacon Hill is seen on far left, not much else to go on, quality of the printed image is not good, and while I can get closer due to this being a larger pixel size view, it still is a not particular image.

When I first saw this view, I knew I had to try my best to win it as to me it was the first look at this part of the District that I ever seen! The hill in background left is the eastern slope of Beacon Hill, making the hill in distance right Guyot Hill. About center sideways and about 2/7 down from the top the Gold Dollar Mine operations are seen, with its high/tall Head-Frame and quite long Ore-House to the right of the head-frame.
   I think this view is taken along the original road between Victor [located sort of behind to the right] & Cripple Creek [located sort of straight into the image], and which ran the hills in Arequa Gulch where this view is from. I also think that the quite large two-story house seen about 3/8 down from top and about 1/4 in from right-hand side is the same house which appears at the top side of the old Arequa Mill images I've seen, making the hillside to the left of the house the former site of the mill. Making this postcard view even more interesting as it links something old to a more modern time, before all this in my modern time is all gone by the huge tailings of the Open Pit Operation in the district…

This quite bad view shows how the Arequa Mill expanded over the years. Appearing in an 1898 book this must been photographed before that time, and being said to have been erected around 1896/1897 they clearly in this view is in the process of being expanded.
In the background is the hill separating this area from the area where Victor & Lawrence is located. I wish I had this a clear good photograph as that hill has some needed info hidden away from my view.

   This view shows a large mill operation, it must have been quite a look to see this in person, a mill built upon over time. In the background, about 1/3 down on left-hand side from the top, you can see the ore-receiving shed of the large Economic Mill, with part of a cooling tower poking up as well. Squaw Mountain is looming in the background, together with some mines and railroad grades of all three railroads serving this District.
   The view of the Economic mill and the Low Line dates this view to have been photographed between 1900 and middle of April 1903. Reason for that end date is I read the Arequa mill was fully destroyed by a fire in the Engineering & Mining Journal, published on the 18th of April, 1903.
