Beautifully engraved certificate from the National Mining Exploration Company issued in 1907. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an eagle. This item is hand signed by the Company's President, Charles Bruce and Treasurer, James Otis and is over 105 years old.
The company started with three different groups claims. The Iron Cap at Globe, Gila County, the Fumarole group
at Safford, Graham County and the Copper Ridge group at Kelvin, Pinal County. Development
concentrated on the Iron Cap properties. The directors offered bonds to the stockholders in an
attempt to raise $250,000 in capital. The stockholders withheld purchases and a $100,000 note was
called in by promoters. The company paid all debts and reorganized as the Iron Cap Copper Co
which continued to develop and mine the Iron Cap group at Globe and the Fumarole group at
Safford. (Copper Handbook, 1908, p.1011; 1910, p.1255; 1912; p.479).
