This somewhat distant view at the structures making up the Metallic or Bi-Metallic Mill located at Cyanide, a stop along the main-line of the F. & C.C. on its route to Cripple Creek from Florence, shows a huge operation that lasted less than ten year. Late 1894 it is reported ground is being broken to create this mill, and in January 1904 it is fully burned down while being dismantled.
   I think the direction of this view is in a northwesterly direction. Just north of this location the Vesta branch of the F. & C.C. took off. But this was from the beginning a Cyanide based mill operation, while the other mills along the before mention Vesta branch was more into the Chlorination business from what I been able to understand. In 1903 this plant belongs to the United States Reduction & Refining Co.
   I did procure the colored version of the image. Source was gray-toned, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes for the moment.Metallic Plant of U.S. Reduction and Refining Company

          graphic for visual presentation of text This apperantly also at some time be known as the Bi-Metallic, which was located at Cyanide, Florence - and with Philip Argall as an manager, same as he was at the Metallic Mill making me pretty sure it is the same mill.
