No. 68 for 200 shares issued to Michael Reese. Amazing vignette is there. Takes the entire left side as water runs down the mountainside to the river below with mining going on throughout. Incorporated 1859. Signed by Chaz C. Bowman, president and Chad Longbody, secretary. Dateline Mokelumne Hill, March 31, 1861. Britton & Rey printer. "The works of the Mokelumne Hill Canal and Mining Company were begun in 1852, and completed to Mokelumne Hill the following year. The ditch, with a capacity of 1000 miner’s inches, was subsequently extended to Campo Seco, Camanche, and vicinities, a distance of 60 miles from the flume at the head of the canal on the South Fork of the Mokelumne River. Under Samuel L. Prindle, the renamed Mokelumne Hill and Campo Seco Canal and Mining Company completed extensions to Chile Camp and Spring Valley (near Valley Springs and Burson today). The demise of hydraulic mining in Calaveras County in the early 1900s, however, brought the prosperity of the independent water companies to an end."
