There are two possibilities for this company. 1) The Eagle Mining Company mmight be the same Eagle Company described by Hollister (Mines of Colorado, 1867, p248-9) in the Union District near the town of Empire, not far from Georgetown, and now the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park off I-70. They owned interest in several producing companies, inclusive of two mills. Their mines included: the Ben Franklin, Knapp, a third interest in the Pine Silver Mining Co. Their first year was marked with controversy, as the officers took home $35,000 in salaries on little or no production, and then got booted out by shareholders._x005F_x000D_
