Cropped view showing the open head-frame of the Oliver Shaft of the Dead Pine Mine. Not the best view, but it is a long distance shot from high up along 7th Street in Victor, so hard to get a good quality shot. I been fooled by the look of the structure to the left of the head-frame, as it appears to cut-off some part of the headframe, where it in reality is just hiding some of it, and I been fooled of another view from the opposite side showing the hoist house to have a roof the same as in this view, and me thinking it was the same while it is not… I think the hoist house is totally hidden behind this shed or what it is used for.Cropped View of the Oliver Shaft of the Dead Pine Mine, From a A View Along 7th Street in Victor.

About center of this view, is the head frame and former hoist house of the Oliver shaft of the Dead Pine seen. I did some heavy repaint of the area around the head frame towards the telegraph/telephone pole to remove the text the photographer had written here, but I do not think I have messed up the view that much. In upper left the M.T. Victor Depot is seen.
   This view is cropped from a postcard by Bill Lehr of Victor from Battle Mountain up near the Ajax mine. Photograph date is possible late 1930's or early 1940's. The postcard has a EKC stamp box on the backside, and Google gives info that this is from the 1939-1950 timespan, and as there are still rails seen, with railroad cars, I assume M.T. is still running, making this also fit the late 1930's and very early 1940's timeframe.Dead Pine Oliver Shaft, Cropped From; City of Victor Colo, Altitude 9747 Ft.

      graphic for visual presentation of text Except for a tiny bit of road marked as entering the claim from east about 1/5 down from the north – a road not even passing through the claim, just stopping – map is real boring. The Discovery Shaft is marked about middle of the claim, a little bit south of the middle actually. There is a second Shaft and a third Shaft to the north.
      graphic for visual presentation of text The most north one is pretty close to the Golden Circle mainline, possible same shaft as seen along that road on some images, with a connected ore house over a dump tunnel made in wood.
      graphic for visual presentation of text In the 1906 Geology book the Oliver shaft is said to be situated 285 feet north of the south end of the claim, sadly not marked in the claim map as there are no shafts at all down there…

      graphic for visual presentation of text In addition I have some underground mining maps related to this mine. I also have a so-called Apex map even if I don't know what that is exactly. It seems to show loosely some squares I guess is structures on the surface. The underground mining maps bought through eBay, which was listed as Gold Coin maps, were the Oliver Shaft shows up, is of the 925, 825, 725 feet levels - but I mean I also have the 625 and the 525 feet level.
