Ghosts of Burke-The Hercules

One of the great mines of the early Coeur D Alene Mining District is the now mostly forgotten Hercules Mine in Burke.

The article says the mill burned down and rebuilt in Wallace. Was that the Hercules Mill? Was it still running when you lived in Wallace? Did it run 24/7 grinding ore, moving trains, etc.? Was it noisy? Now, other than the freeway, you can hear a pin drop in Wallace at night.
