This certificate dates to the second mining boom of 1896/97 for Gold Creek. Two newspapers, the Gold Creek News and Mountain City News, sprung up and promoted the community. The Gold Creek Townsite Co. was formed in Denver. The town experienced a surge of activity that lasted until 1900. It is now a ghost town with little left but a sidewalk.
