Cert. #242, issued to Edwin S. Schoonmaker for 1,000 shares on March 8th, 1915 in Oakland. Not signed by the president, but signed by B.F. Edwards as secretary. Not cancelled. Black border and print, gold seal, multiple mining vignettes. Folds, pinholes, stain on reverse. 8.5 x 11" The Santa Rosa lead-silver mine was discovered in 1910. It was located east of Cerro Gordo and 26 miles from Keeler, where the mine office was. Production through 1920, $500,000 of silver, lead and copper ore (Mines Handbook, 1924). There were two systems of veins with average width of 4'. The fine outcrops would indicate a high degree of mineralization, but the orebodies and rich ore was in all cases found close to the surface. The mine re-opened in 1916 and was operated in a small way in 1920 by the company and lessees (M.H.). The company was still operating in 1931 according to the Mines Handbook. In 1901, Edwards was a merchant in Candelaria and producing borax at Columbus Marsh, under lease from Borax Smith. On his first day in Tonopah, he bought a half interest in the Mizpah lease and the West End claim. In 1906, the West End Consolidated Mining Company was formed with Borax Smith as president and Zabriskie and Edwards involved. The West End Consolidated was a majority owner of this company.
