A cableway transports excavated boulders from the Gold Pan Pit at the Gold Pan Mining Company operations just south of Breckenridge, Colorado. Boulders larger than 8 inches were lifted from the pit by rectangular metal platforms edged on three sides called "stone boats". The cableway transported and disposed the rocks from the pit, and carried heavy pipes and equipment into the pit. In view are mine buildings and structures, including a locomotive crane used to assist in removing boulders from the pit. Barney Ford Hill is in the background. Early 1900s.
