   This view shows a large mill operation, it must have been quite a look to see this in person, a mill built upon over time. In the background, about 1/3 down on left-hand side from the top, you can see the ore-receiving shed of the large Economic Mill, with part of a cooling tower poking up as well. Squaw Mountain is looming in the background, together with some mines and railroad grades of all three railroads serving this District.
   The view of the Economic mill and the Low Line dates this view to have been photographed between 1900 and middle of April 1903. Reason for that end date is I read the Arequa mill was fully destroyed by a fire in the Engineering & Mining Journal, published on the 18th of April, 1903.The Arequa Mill

This quite bad view shows how the Arequa Mill expanded over the years. Appearing in an 1898 book this must been photographed before that time, and being said to have been erected around 1896/1897 they clearly in this view is in the process of being expanded.
In the background is the hill separating this area from the area where Victor & Lawrence is located. I wish I had this a clear good photograph as that hill has some needed info hidden away from my view.Works of the Colorado Ore Reduction Co., Elkton

This sadly quite bad view shows how the Arequa Mill lays on the hill as seen from southeast. Appearing in an August 1899 issue this must been photographed before that time and being said to have been erected around 1896/1897 the timespan is not that large.
   Beacon Hill is seen on far left, not much else to go on, quality of the printed image is not good.Arequa Mill and Cyanide Plant.
