I am not 100% sure which mine is seen here in the foreground right, but I've decided (16.11.2021) that this is more likely to be the Kitty Lane Mine group then my thinking of this being part of the Thompson mine. This as I have a glass plate negative give me a shaft-house that fits better to the Thompson, making this better suited to be Kitty Lane looking at the bad view and my old 1903 topographic map, and a 1902 claims overview map where I see railroad lines drawn in. This sadly not great view here indicates an ore-bin just at the tail-end of the M.T. switchback going up the Elkton Mine coal bins. It can of course still be that I am wrong, but I think I am right now, and that this was part of the Kitty Lane operation on the Kittie Lane, and Sitting Bull Nos. 1 & 2 lodes, making up the Kitty Lane group.
   This view itself is more about/towards the Elkton Mine in the distance, one of the larger mines in the District, while in the foreground the ore bin and trestle from some mine – as mention, most likely the Kitty Lane Mine can be seen, a small mining operation.
   The massive trestle seen is part of the Midland Terminal trackage to get access to the coal bins of the power plant for the Elkton Mine, which also possible was served by the Short Line using the Low Line trolley tracks. A string of boxcars can be seen on that track off to the right of the trestle in the distance.Elkton Mine and the Kitty Lane Mine

      General notes:
      Plat Map is boring. The Discovery Shaft is about 1/7 northwest of the southeast border, with a second Shaft about 2/7 northwest of southeast border. On the Amended map lot of ground has been lost to other claims, taking it down from 10,143 Acres to 5,121 Acres.. It has also been turned into a broken up claim with four separate pieces, two very tiny, not really useful and one in northwest that could have been useful but there is nothing there.
      graphic for visual presentation of text All the action is down on the southern part, where the second shaft mention above is also lost ground, there seem to be a Tract B. belonging to the Anna May claim. But, some work have been done, as there is now a Cut going to the discovery shaft from the southeast a short distance. Sadly maps are to early for the railroad to show up, but I managed to fix that my self using the Amended map and my 1902 claims overview map to add in the railroads where it interacts with this claim.
      graphic for visual presentation of text As this claim's name is associated as a working mine as per my 1902/03 topographic map, placing it up where the tail end of the M.T. switchback is, I assume it is because by the time that map was made the same company owning this claim also owns the Sitting Bull No. 2 claim, and sometime after the claim maps was made but before the topographic map, there most have been made a shaft in that area. As per February 2015 no info has yet been found to prove that, except it is drawn there in the topographic map. :-)
