Diagonal lines in two gears, sitting atop of each other
Abandoned machinery at the Centennial #3

These gears (or grinders, perhaps?) lie abandoned behind the Centennial #3 rockhouse. There's a lot of machinery there -- so of it quite large. I suspect that it may have been related to milling the rock which came out of the mine, when the Homestake Mining Company reopened it (briefly) in the 1970s. Now, it's abandoned and decaying, not even protected from the elements.
