• That's the Hancock Consolidated Mining Co's No. 2 Shaft at Ingot & Elevation St in Hancock's Klondike Location.

• If this is Ingot and Elevation, that can't be the #2 shaft. The #2 shaft is a considerable distance north of that intersection.

• The anonymous poster of 2/26/2015 is likely confusing the Quincy #2 shaft-rockhouse with the Hancock #2 shaft-rockhouse. Quincy #2 is northeast of the location shown here and remains a popular tourist attraction to this day. Hancock #2 (Hancock Consolidated Mining Company) was roughly at the intersection of Ingot and Elevation and is shown above. The shaft-rockhouse seen here was torn down ca. 1938. The concrete abutments for the two rock bins still stand between Elevation and 2nd, south of Ingot. They can be seen from many angles but are perhaps best appreciated from an aerial view (e.g. Google).

• This is one of my favorite photos of Hancock. The Hancock Mine #2 shaft-rockhouse towers over Ingot and Elevation Streets. The house in the foreground of the shaft-rockhouse still stands at that intersection. More of the mining operation is seen as well as the tops of some Elevation Street homes, a Houghton County Traction Company streetcar, and plenty of cattle. Simply wonderful.
