Bodie Mining District, Mono Co., Cal. printed at the bottom. Inc. in 1878, No. 6534, issued in 1882 at San Francisco to E.R. Grant, trustee, for 100 shares. Signed by A.J. Ralston as president and Geo. Sessions as secretary. Punch cancelled. Britton & Rey, printers, S.F. Folds, pinholes, some soiling and rough edges. The Tioga mine was located on Bodie Bluff along with the Syndicate mine. In 1882, the 982 foot level had been prospected by a number of drifts and cross-cuts passing through a formation of quartz and porphyry giving good assays. The company encountered problems with water and had to pump out the mine. Ultimately, the mine went below 1,100’ depth. A report from the following week notes that: "Main shaft is down 65 feet below the 982 level. Very little water is encountered" (Mi. Sci. Press, pg. 151, 1882).
