Title on Image:
Gold Hill Mines, including the Half Moon & the Anchoria-Leland Mines, and Part of the Original High Line Trolley Line
This view of Gold Hill mines are taken from Globe Hill slope below, near the Gold Pass mine, and have captured many of the early mine operations on this part of Gold Hill and hence show the massive amount of mining that went on among the trees. The claims in this area are a confusing mass of crisscrossing each other and I do not know the names of all structures seen, sadly.
In this scene, about 1/3 from top the original High Line roadbed is seen climbing Gold Hill, below the marked Half Moon Mine, making that one easy to spot near upper left. Near upper right it is also easy to recognize the large shaft house of the Anchoria-Leland Mine, but the two shaft houses in front of the Anchoria-Leland is more complicated.
I think one of them, the upper one, is the Mattie L. aka Jefferson mine, maybe the other is the City View mine? Also the Chance, or Anchor might be candidates for those shaft houses, but we also have that small Head Frame operation nearer the track, with a shed over the hoist…
Below the High Line roadbed there are also two shaft houses, one I am certain is the Geneva mine, but one might also be the Jefferson's Co. Mattie L. mine. Other claims are the T.E.M.O.N.J.I., Nada, Tarascon, but also Foggy, Good Enough, Gamma are lodes in this area, and more, so for now (Oct. 23, 2021), this is what I have.
I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment.
