The Denver City Consolidated Silver Mining Co. was incorporated in Colorado in 1880. The company owned interest in the Denver City, Shamus O'Brien and Quadrilateral claims on Fryer Hill in the California district. J. Whitaker Wright was a financier and speculative promoter of gold mines during the late 19th century. Born in England, he gained some formal learning in chemistry and assaying in his youth. At the age of 21 years he left England for a position as a mining assayer in the USA. He soon moved into the field of mine promotion and by 1875 was a leader in the mining boom at the Leadville center. He moved to Philadelphia where he continued his company speculations. He became a member of the New York Stock Exchange and, for a time, was chairman of the Philadelphia Mining Exchange. James Whitaker Wright, organizer of the British America Corporation, committed suicide in a London courtroom following his conviction on charges of falsifying company books.
