Silver Mine

Today's picture shows a Silver Mine in Colorado. It looks like the donkeys are about to be loaded up with ore. The picture was taken about 1900.

  1. I confess I know little about silver mining. How much more of the operation would be out of this picture, and how much ore could one animal be expected to carry? I wonder how much security would be an issue in 1900.
