Keith,

WOW, my edumacation is continuing. Water wheel power. Never heard it mentioned in other articles on the Gilpin Tram. Very interesting.

Really appreciate all the work that's going into this. Thanks.

Thank you Keith. Please show more, much more. We may need to start the GLA, Gilpin Lovers Assn., here on Freerails.

Like the others said, really appreciate you taking the time to post and share these fine pics and maps.

Keith-on the structure that covered the water wheel on the Hidden Treasure Mill, what material do you think that is?

I'd like to hazard a guess and say horizontal boards. It looks like it has a horizontal stratification in the picture.

Bernd-if you look at the picture Keith posted at the bottom of the page it is easier to see: Ive seen it quite a bit on industrial mining buildings from 1890s to about 1910. I could never tell if it was just a tarpaper or actually a composite rolled roofing material...(and what color would it be?)

Either way I am envious of what is still extant at Blackhawk as shown by Keith's pictures. I have been employed as historical archeologist for the Bureau of Land Management for the last few years, so may day job is to locate all of the historic lode mines in Southwestern Oregon...in a nut shell, out of the 450 minbing sites we've recorded, none have (historic)standing structures or even retaining walls, so it is nice to see something left that reflects the heritage and hard work of previous generations.

Jeeeeees, I looked at the last picture and didn't even notice. This time with glasses. Yup, your right looks like tar paper or something. I'd say balck or dark brown. But hey I was wrong the first time too. :dope:

Yes, I believe that it was tarpaper also. I looked at photos in the Gilpin Era book and in one or two, you can see the wrinkles (it looks like) in the covering.
