26 (Fig. 29b) "Looking northwest along the strike of the Fort Duchesne vein from the Stacey Reed shaft. Almost the entire Arrowchis Lease can be seen on this picture. The fence posts in the foreground mark the southern boundary. The brush line beyond the Arrowchis shaft is where the vein passes beyond its northwest boundary. The men are ‘warming up' the gasoline hoist for the Stacey Reed shaft. Obviously, they need a hoist house."P0873 Gilsonite Mining Photograph CollectionP0873n1_01_05b

28 (Fig. 28) "Two views of the head-frame of the Stacey Reed shaft, taken from near the south boundary of the Arrowchis Lease of the Western Gilsonite and Elaterite Company, and from a point approximately where it is proposed to sink the new two-compartment deep shaft for pemanent commercial production. The Stacey Reed shaft here shown will serve as auxiliary manway and airway for the new shaft of the Western Gilsonite and Elaterite Company by permitting this use of their shaft, and will bear their share of the hoisting and drifting necessary to make the connection. As explained in the text, the overhead thus saved will be of vital importance to all concerned. Note the rick of sacked gilsonite near the shaft. The discovery of commercial gilsonite at this point on the vein beyond the boundary line of the Arrowchis Lease proved beyond question the ‘ore' body throughout the full length of the lease."P0873 Gilsonite Mining Photograph CollectionP0873n1_01_04a
