Gears on an Antique Gold Digging Machine, Yukon

This is a photo of the gears on Barge #4 near Dawson City, Yukon. This is a small part of the machinery that was used to dig for gold. Barge #4 was HUGE; it used NO lubricants since oil messed up the density separation. Thus, the parts squealed/squeaked so loud that it was heard miles away at Dawson City. The colors have been enhanced with additional color.
