4. Griffith Mine 1968The crushed ore enters the processing building on the right through conveyors beneath the two ore piles from the crusher. The stacker conveyor can be swivelled to feed either pile. The two grinding mills first in line required so much power that the mill wasn't allowed to start the second one until 15 minutes after the first to allow the powerplant at the Ear Falls dam to recover.

Bruce Fread and Jim Newman-Tyler. Sixty feet down to the conveyor beneath the crusher and thirty feet up to the stacker building. Great exercise running up and down the stairs. I don't remember the distance along the inclined conveyor, and I don't really want to think about it but it was an easier walk then the stairs.
