Henry Seibert & Bros. printer. We are unsure of the location of this company’s property. Tenney (1929, p. 263), reporting on Pima County, mentions that the Emperor Copper Company was reorganized to exploit the copper deposits of Mineral Hill in 1882 after completion of the railroad. The company had begun development of the deposits and planned to erect a smelter, but when the price of copper slumped in 1884, they abandoned all work on the property. Whether this is the same as the Copper Emperor is not clear. The difference in names could be as simple as Tenney mis-transcribing the name properly, which he did several times. Unc. VF.
