Two interesting features: 1) the Delamar Mine's enormous wood yard (the dark mass at center-left)--all timbers destined for use in square-set supports underground, and 2) the Hog Pen Shoot, an enormous pit near the summit of Ferguson Hill, has not yet formed.

The result was one of the highest rates of silicosis (aka, miner's lung--a debilitating pulmonary disease that usually led to death by suffocation) anywhere in the western US, earning Delamar its unfortunate nickname, "The Widowmaker."
