This view from the northeast slope of Ironclad hill is looking east towards Pike's Peak in the background, with a small mine operation visible on the left half of this view. The photo on DPL has more ground in front, but no more structures or anything useful really.
In terms of the mine itself, it appears to use a horse hoist, set up on a small dump in front of the main structure with a small shed attached to the right-hand side of that, strangely enough with the roof of that shed sloping towards the main structure for some reason. There appears to be patches of snow on the ground and ice drippings hangs from a plank that acts like a water collector or something from the roof, seen best on the DPL photo behind the horse.
