This view was taken just above the M.T. trestle crossing Eclipse Gulch, and it shows an early look at quite a large shaft house of the Eclipse Mine, and how it is located between the roadbeds of the M.T on the upper side and the F. & C.C. on the lower side. Photographed around 1899/1900, as we see the Economic Mill way down the Eclipse gulch at the right-hand side, making this 1899 or later as that is the year the mill was built. And as I see no traces of the Low Line which was built in 1900, this was photographed in that timeframe.Eclipse Mine (Early View, Area Look)

This view of the Eclipse Mine shaft house was taken just above the M.T. trestle crossing Eclipse Gulch, and it shows an early look at quite a large shaft house of the mine, and how it is located between the roadbeds of the M.T on the upper side and the F. & C.C. on the lower side. Hiding behind the large curved M.T. trestle, inside the lower right quadrangle, it is even possible to make out the ore house shown on the claim map, where it is drawn halfway between the F. & C.C. and the M.T. railroads.

      graphic for visual presentation of text Map is early so not much is shown. But, it shows a claim divided into two parts by another claim, with the Discovery Shaft in the west part together with a Ore House partly outside the claims northwestern border with a Adit some a short distance southeast of that. Direction of that adit is toward a Shaft inside the lost ground, drawn as Carbonate Queen claim, while west of that and south of the discovery shaft there is shown a second short Adit and south of that again a third Shaft is drawn in.
      graphic for visual presentation of text The F. & C.C grade would just pass by on the west side, while the M.T. seems to have crossed just east of the discovery shaft when I overlay the tracks drawn on my 1902 claims overview map unto the claim map. By year of 1900, the Low Line and Short Line grade would also pass over the western part of this claim, across the area between the ore house and the connected adit, and some distance west of the discovery shaft. I've seen and shown on upper right hand side an image of an old Shaft House type near the discovery shaft, or at the discovery shaft, hard to make it out for sure. Might also be on a crossing claim named Sunset, as that claim cross some of the southwestern part of the Eclipse claim, and I've seen this mine talked about as the Sunset-Eclipse mine.
