Description
This collection is composed mostly of plans and blueprints for mine equipment by the Aurora Consolidated Mines Company.
Background
The Aurora Consolidated Mines Company was a mining enterprise located in Nevada and headquartered in Utah. The company was incorporated in 1913 with $100,000 in capital. The company mined gold and silver in Aurora, Nevada, for a year and was then sold to the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company, owned by George Wingfield, in 1914. The mine was considered one of the most important in Nevada at the time it was sold. The mine also contained a cyanide mill.
