Printed by Major & Knapp. Location of mining works is Clear Creek Co. Pin holes especially at fold intersections. Some corners are dog eared. Heavy folds with very small issues at edges. According to Hollister (1867), the company's works were located above Spanish Bar on the north side of the creek where the Lincoln Ledge crosses to become the Oro. They have an adit at creek level that has been run in 135 feet to intersect a shaft 65 feet deep. The ore vein is 8-10 inches in width, with 50-60 tins of ore being taken out. A substantial dam is giving them 900 feet of water power with a 550 ft.long flume race, 15 feet of fall, and a 100 horse centervent turbine wheel. Their stone mill has 20 stamps, two Freiberg pans, and a Crosby & Thompson desulphurizer. D.B. Myres serves as agent for the company. It is a "promising mine" [pg.235-36]. Prag Collection
