Mary McKinnie Mining Co minutes ledger 7.jpg (244748 bytes)

This meeting minutes ledger is completely original and frequently signed by the board of directors of The Mary McKinnie Mining Company throughout the ledger.  Binding is original gray cloth with red leather spine and corners; 75 pages, with inserts, beginning January 1916 through December 8, 1928.  Condition: very good plus to near fine; covers and interior contents.

The Mary McKinney Mine was located in Squaw Gulch in the Cripple Creek Gold Mining District in 1891 by Frank Castello and the Houghton brothers.  Banker and mining baron, David H. Moffat heavily bought into the property and by 1894 was able to turn the property into one of the most productive in the gold mining district.  

Ultimately, the Mary McKinnie Mine produced over 500,000 of gold, and its main shaft was sunk to nearly 1500 feet from an elevation of 10,700 feet.

Among the noted historical Cripple Creek personalities involved with this mining company were: Frank Castello, Charles Castello, D.H. Moffat, John T. Hawkins, W.H. Spurgeon, Daniel Thatcher, and John L. Nichols.

This is a highly detailed record of the board of the Mary McKinnie Mining Company's decisions, as well as the prosecution of those decisions, in relation to the development and production of this very productive Cripple Creek gold mine.

Ledger book produced by the Out West Printing & Stationery Company, Colorado Springs, Colorado, circa 1915.
