Eureka Hill. Site of the Iron Blossom #3 shaft. The grade of the Eureka Hill is in the lower left corner. It runs downgrade curving to the right (North) behind the large waste dump in the center of the photo. Yes, the grade is steep, about 5%. However, from the Iron Blossom #3 the grade was just 1% down to the Beck #2.
Eureka Hill. The grade of the Eureka Hill can be seen crossing the face of Sioux Peak on its way to the end of the line at the Beck Tunnel #2 shaft (out of picture to the right).
