Ore was drawn from the cuts through a glory hole and trammed through an adit to the mill. Initially this was a 10 stamp mill, which was reported to have produced $110,000 from $5 per ton gold ore. This mill was replaced by an electric 60-stamp mill in 1902. In 1904 the Big Indian mine was the biggest producer in Jefferson County.
