Allegheny, California is also the site of the famous Sixteen-to-One mine in California. It is located in Sierra County. Allegheny was one of California's early gold rush towns and the Allegheny Company tunnel was begun in April, 1853 (Gudde). The town was located on Kanaka Creek, just south of Downieville. Among the rich lode mines at Allegheny, the largest was the Sixteen-to-One mine which produced over $25 million thru the 1960's. This prospectus is quite rare from 1904. The company's property ran parallel to the noted Bald Mountain mine, which produced over $9 million. Twenty six pages in all plus a fold out claim map inside the back cover. The prospectus had been folded at one time but otherwise the condition is very good and it is tightly bound. Allegheny California
