Beautiful certificate from the Searchlight Helena Mining Company issued in 1908. This historic document was printed by the Goes Company and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of a mining camp on a treeless slope with two smaller vignettes of miners underground. Gold border, seal and safety print. This item has the signatures of the Company's President, H. Shannon and Secretary, C. R. Fanlstock and is over 101 years old. Minor wear and small tears along fold creases. Fine to very fine.
Searchlight Helena Mining Company was organized on three claims at Searchlight, named "Helena" Nos. 1, 2, and 3. These claims were adjacent to the Santa Barbara Searchlight Mining company of which Senator H. K. Carter was a director. Assays as high as $42.75 had been obtained.
