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.
Scope and Content
The Aurora Consolidated Mines Company records, composed mostly of plans and blueprints for mine equipment, appear to be primarily
from the mine's metal and repair shop. The collection is composed of one manuscript, a large number of plans and blueprints,
one letter, a number of clerical documents, and two pieces of ephemera.
