One thing to note - I have been told by knowledgeable people in the mining industry that mechanical ore feeders, such as shown here, were not used in the Black Hawk mills. This innovative machine was tied to the action of the stamp hammer cams, and mechanically get ore into the small slot at the rear of the stamp battery

This is a side view of mechanical ore feeders, not common in Black Hawk, but used elsewhere. These two photos were taken at the Argo Mill museum display in Idaho Springs
So, so far we have seen the crushing machinery and first steps in ore processing. But, there is a lot more going on inside a mill. Next, we'll at what happens next in the flow through the mill.
