The Bald Eagle group of mines lives on to the modern day and modern mining methods.  In 1935 the Empire Mines and Metals Co begins the development of the Bald Eagle deposit.  Following a high grade vein, assay results exploded and the mine ramped up production to a massive scale extremely quickly.  The mining methods were open cut, drift mining and shaft mining.  This mine was shuttered by WW2 in 1944 and was never brought back into production.
