Found some interesting things that I never knew before, there were dredges mining in Colorado, I always thought they primarily ran in Alaska and the Yukon, I never thought they were in the state I grew up in! All my reading on mining in Colorado, I had never seen photos or read about dredges in action there. Most interesting and eye-opening, to me anyways.
I found many good photos here, (though a bit small in size), still many I had never seen before. Might be a good reference to help in better understanding these interesting structures. Along with the mine photos, there are interior shots of mine shafts, tools, stamp and mill machine, and some interesting ore tram units.
Not just Colorado either, this site lists most states and many other countries as well on the home page, but I haven't delved into any others yet.
Thanks Chriss...that is one GREAT site! I just checked out the NM and AZ mine photos and got some notions (Mae West-"What kind of notions do you have?") about more mines on my layout! Of course now I might need to lay some more track or maybe locate a couple of them on one siding...who knows. Again, this is a cool site for us guys who are "et up with mines".
