1. Charcoal Yard Marker
Inscription. Thousands of sacks of charcoal were stacked in this area. The charcoal was used to fire the furnace used to assay the ore samples at the nearby assay office, and as fuel for blacksmith forges in the machine shop at the mine.

Because charcoal is easily ignited, great precaution was taken to prevent fires. The pipe fire hydrant can still be seen. It was always kept in readiness with a fire hose attached.

Charcoal was made or "burned" in the mountains to the west.
