A mill that at one time I had worked on for a model, still have the rough plans I did up for it. The mill operated in Sandon, in the Slocan Mining District in Southern British Columbia, processing Lead, Zinc & Silver. i do have a mill flow sheet for the mill, would not live long enough to model the interior. Having enough problems modelling equipment for the Silversmith Power Plant, which still operates in Sandon for over 90 years.
Right now the machinery consists of very detailed kits.
Each one a model in itself.
As I actually work on the model, I would be happy to post photos of my progress.
But I am still doing research right now.
The particular prototype I want to try to follow is the Kentucky Mine in Sierra City, California.
A Google search for Kentucky Mine Sierra will lead you to photos of this mill.
I have visited it several times over the past 30 years but have never been able to actually get inside.
Youtube videos are available of the mill interior by searching for Kentucky Mine Sierra on Youtube.
But the videos are made by tourists rather than hobbyists looking to build a model of the mine.
The staff at the mill are all volunteers and have not be of any help to me.
The Western Scale Model kit does not follow my prototype well enough to just build the kit.
