Reduction Mill 

The photo caption in the album reads: "Reduction mill of the Standard Chemical Company, Canonsburg, Penna."  The mill was in Pennsylvania rather than in Colorado (which would have been nearer the mines) because the processing of the ore required huge quantities of chemicals, and these chemicals were available in Pennsylvania.
