Located in Del Norte County, California, according to 1874 Congressional Reports. Inc. in Massachusetts. No. 72, issued for 100 shares to James Jarves on July 5th, 1866. Signed by treasurer Bacon and president Henry Souther. Not cancelled. Black border and print, surface mining vignette. Printed by Cutter, Tower & Co., Boston & NY. One 25 cent adhesive IR stamp attached on the left. Horizontal and vertical folds, some creases. 6.5 x 11.5" Browne (1868) mentions an Alta copper mine in Del Norte County, noting it is the only mine in the county operating, and that they "are engaged in developing their mine. They have sunk their main shaft down to the depth of 500 feet, run their tunnel 200 feet, and drifted at several levels, finding bodies of ore which appear to be improve in quality as the workings progress. The disturbed and broken character of the formation ceases at 200 feet from the surface. The company has sent 400 tons of ore to San Francisco since January, 1867, which has been reshipped to New York. The average of ore has been about 16 per cent; but the costs attending its transportation to San Francisco, and reshipment thence to New York, absorbs the value in expenses."
