Two pieces. A common stock certificate issued in 1911 and a gold bond from the company issued in 1902. The company acquired the Alma branch of the Boston and Colorado Smelting Company in 1908. Company invested in area mines including the Excelsior and Kentucky Belle.
The large Boston and Colorado smelter building was demolished and the wood was used to construct the new smelter at Alma Junction, which began operations in 1910. This company venture quickly failed (Park County Historic Landmark Nomination- internet). Both pieces are uncanceled. The bond certificate has 11 coupons attached.
