Proposed plans for Crushing, Concentrating, and Storage Plants. Also mill plans and mining equipment rooms featured.
Kansas Line Engine Room
Picture of the engine room. Bessmer gas engine can be seen in the foreground pulling the mill. These engines were two cycle running on natural gas and started on air pressure. In the background are two Chicago Pneumatic gas driven compressors. These were direct connected with the power cylinder on the front and the air on the rear, also two cycle engines. Both air and power pistons were on the same rod.
Breaker Rolls - Vogey Mine
Breaker Rolls Vogey Mine. This was the secondary crushing operation
Crusher Room - Vogey Mine
Crushers by Webb City and Cartersville Foundry and Machine Works, Plant No. 1. Worker can be seen in the background.
Jig Room - Coahuila Mine
The jig room for Lead and Zinc Mining Co. No. 2’s Coahuila Mine. Two workers can be seen posing for the photo over piles of lead and zinc waiting to be processed. Date unknown.
Plan of Concentrating Mill: This building would separate the valuable ore from other minerals
Plan of Crushing Plant: A crushing plant uses machinery to reduce the size of ore into a gravel consistency
Plan of Crushing and Storage Plant
Ore Rec. Bins – Filled with minerals from the mine
Apron Feeder - a mechanical feeder used in handing operations to transfer minerals to other equipment or extract minerals
Roller Grizzly - Rollers for the coarse screening of bulk materials
Blake Crushers - The Blake crusher is built in a rectangular frame with a crushing chamber at one end
Primary Conveyor – Moves the ore Vibrating Screen - separates a flow of material into grades of size for processing
Symons Crusher – A cone crusher that would grind rocks into smaller ones. The Symons Crusher was the first cone crusher of its time.
Return Conveyor – Moves the ore
Sample Cutter - Removes a sample of rock from the face for grade sampling.
Sample Conveyor – Moves the ore
Weighometer - An appliance for weighing minerals on a conveyor
Mill Feed Conveyor – Moves the ore
No 1 Sample Crusher
Receiving Hopper - Feeds material into the process line
No 2 Sample Crusher
No 2 Crusher
Belt Feeder - Short belt conveyors that ensure the flow of minerals, and extracting minerals from one area and making sure that other equipment receives the correct volume
Screens – Separates minerals into different sized groups
No 3 Sample Cutter
Conveyor – Moves the ore
Cone Tailing Dewatering Screens
Cone Tailing Conveyor-
Wash Screen Sink
Sink Cone Screen
Smitten Drag Classifier
Cell Cleaner Jigs
Dewater Cone – treats waste slurry to recycle water to be used in the plant
Chat Elevator -

Dorr Thickener - recovers water for reuse in the mill
Wilfley Feed Pump
Float Machine – Separates minerals
Wilfley Tailing Pump
Lead and Zinc Filters
Zn. Conc. Conveyor
Rougher Jig Elevator
Rougher Jigs - Rougher jigs are used to separate the values from the material
