Ore in open pit

Fuller Mine, Pateros, Squaw Creek Mining District, Okanogan Co., Washington, USA

This piece of hornblende and magnetite was one of many large pieces of low-grade iron ore that were laying around the pit. The ore was supposedly difficult to refine, so little was shipped. In the second world war some was used as ships' ballast.

North Star ore bin

North Star Mine, Sun Valley, Wood River Mining District, Blaine Co., Idaho, USA

The North Star Mine was recently mostly destroyed by reclamation, but as of 2018 the ore bin is still standing outside the portal. This mine was the site of one of the deadliest avalanches in Idaho history. The bin is still full of ore, mainly consisting of Arsenopyrite and other sulfides. The mine was connected to the larger Triumph mine below, but for most if its history operated as its own mine.

Compressor near shafts

Lucky Jim Mine, Quadra Island, Nanaimo Mining Division, British Columbia, Canada

The Lucky Jim mine has been sealed, but I was hoping to find some ore on the dump. Instead, it snowed just before we got there so I couldn't find much. The large steam-driven compressor is still at the mine though, and is a very impressive piece of equipment to see in person.

Snub Tunnel

Matrix Claim, Anacortes, Skagit Co., Washington, USA

The portal near the trail that goes by the mine. I'm not sure what they were digging for here, all I could find was some greenstone and jasper. It was only a few feet deep, but was very wide.

The Cannon Mine memorial

Cannon Mine, Squillchuck Creek, Wenatchee, Wenatchee Mining District, Chelan Co., Washington, USA

This memorial is just outside the sealed adit. The ore cart was not used in the Cannon, since it was a trackless mine.

Looking up the dump.

Kromona Mine, Mount Stickney, Sultan Mining District, Snohomish Co., Washington, USA

The upper tram station is still partially standing, but one of the bunkers has recently collapsed, crushing the center. The dump is very large for the amount of workings.

The New Light powerplant

New Light Mine, Harts Pass, Slate Creek Mining District, Whatcom Co., Washington, USA

This Atlas Diesel engine was installed to power a generator that ran the mill. The previous power source was a pelton water turbine, but did not produce enough power so the engine was installed in the early 1950s.
