Si.

Yes - everything fine with mine + powerhouse.


However what you thought are open windows resulted

when John Bighammer mixed his own receipt of gunpowder for blasting rocks...


 

Notice I haven't reported last years addition to the mine,

a chute to load hoppers with some mysterious ore.


At this date, we still don't know what material

we may expect to find in the murky deeps of the shafts.


Local folklore says,

pure brass veins are deep under the hills of Buckhorn.

And here a scene which was caught on film

when old #90 tried in vain to lift a train of hoppers up the hill:
