Unfortunately, I don't have any other pics of the model, as it is at school. Architecturally, it is somewhat unusual not only that it looks almost "Prairie School" but also because it is "earthfast" construction. There is no foundation, the posts are simply stuck in the ground and everything attached to the posts. A couple of footnotes on it, when the state geologists did a report on the mine the ore in the ore bins basically had no gold in it, but one of abandoned stopes had fairly rich gold, but the miners were looking in the wrong spot. I don't think the miners were too commited to the mining game as the dump outside the window of the mill is full of 1930's and 40's Pabst and Ranier cans...
