Number 613 issued on February 8, 1855 to Page, Bacon, & Co. for $3,605. Selby Smelting & Refining Company was begun in 1849 when Thomas arrived. In 1856 he would also start the Selby Smelting & Lead Works which would be the first smelting operation for metals other than gold and silver on the west coast. He soon enlarged his facility to 40 furnaces and became the largest smelter in the United States. Selby is a real success story of the California Gold Rush.
