This view shows the surface structures of the Maid of Orleans mine pretty nicely. But of course, I would have wished for this to be a true photograph. Because then I would most likely been able to better get a view of the finer details lost in this view here. Especially as there appears to be a short side spur to this side of the hoist house of the Mine, to drop of coal from a railroad car.
The El Paso branch line of the F. & C.C. is running down to that mine this side of the shaft house, while the short-lived switchback branch further down Beacon Hill was located on the other side, sort of visible on the left side of this view.Structures of the Maid of Orleans Mine on Beacon Hill.

This not so great view shows the surface structures of the Maid of Orleans mine. I so wish to find this view as a true photograph, but so far, I have had no luck. Sadly, as while this view give some basic info about the hoist house and head frame of this mine, there really is not much use for a model of this mine based on this view. It is a cropped view of a panoramic shot named "Panoramic View of Beacon Hill, Showing Maid of Orleans at Extreme Left, Little Bessie in Foreground and El Paso, C. K. & N., etc., in Background."Hoist House of the Maid of Orleans Mine on Beacon Hill.

      General notes:
      Map is interesting in many ways. The Discovery Shaft is about middle of claim on the earliest map, and has a Shaft House. There is also marked two Trenches east of the discovery shaft. Further northeast there is a Road crossing the claim, with a Cut and a Tunnel just northeast of this road. A third Trench is further northeast and there is also a second Cut and a Tunnel shown southeast of the trench. I think the road went east of the F. & C.C. (tracks sadly not marked...)
      graphic for visual presentation of text On the first Amended map, dated in January 1898, lot of ground is lost, all the ground in Section 30, T.15S., R.69W. is lost, where the before mention road, cuts and tunnels where, but also some ground on Section 25, T.15S., R.70W. is now lost, including one of the trenches southeast of the discovery shaft and about 1/3 of the other. Seems the rest went to the August Flower and the Chicken Hawk claims.
      graphic for visual presentation of text On the second Amended map, Survey Number is now marked with Amended behind it, none of the workings on the lost ground is shown, and it seems possible they lost another small tiny bit of ground as the Chicken Hawk claim has some space now and the claim is now given to be 5.039 Acres, while it was 5.08 Acres on the first Amended map and 9.688 Acres on the original map.
