Pictures of "Knowles Bros, Coleman Truck Fleet" (Info. Needed)

Hello!
I am looking into this for a friend of mine.
I have four pictures that I'm guessing are from the 1940s. I am wondering about the company "Knowles Bros" and what the men are transporting (bags say "Eagle" on them). I am also wondering why they are transporting them and where exactly. The images say Cascade, Idaho, which is what led me to this specific forum.

Any information relating these pictures is greatly appreciated!

Great photos! Warm Lake Summit, the grade between Warm Lake & Landmark, Warm Lake in background. I'm guessing they're hauling into Stibnite. See Duane Petersen's book, "83 Miles of Hell, the Stibnite Ore Haul, 1942 to 1952." D & D Books, Cascade, Idaho. 1999.

Ron Smith, local historian & major contributor to "Pans, Picks and Shovels" by the Valley Co. History Project writes -

The pictures of the Knowles Bros. Coleman Trucks are taking sacked cement from Cascade, for the construction of the Deadwood Dam in the 1920's.
