Incorporated in Colorado. Cert. #14698, issued to Parkinson & Burr in 1904 for 100 shares. Signed by President J.P. Whitney, an investor in many mining companies, and Secretary W. J. Downing. Black border, central vignette. U/C. Datelined Leadville. Printer: ABN Co., N.Y. Whitney took an exhibit of Colorado ores to the Paris Exhibition in 1867 in order to promote investments. In the years of 1880-1900, the ores of the Leadville area were considered Bonanza grade. Rich ore bodies at the contact of the Leadville Limestone allowed for nearly 1 million ounces of silver to be produced in 1880. Most likely this company adopted the Bonanza name from the rich ores they hoped to exploit. Rare. (Al Adams Gold Rush Memorabilia Collection) Date: Location: Leadville, Colorado HWAC# 58440
