Beautifully engraved Certificate from the famous Boundary Red Mountain Mining Company issued in 1923. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an elk. This item is hand signed by the company's officers and is over 80 years old. The Boundary Red Mountain Mining Company operated the Boundary Red Mountain Mine in Whatcom County, near the Canadian border, in Washington State. The mine is two miles south of Canada and can be reached by road and trail from Chilliwack, British Columbia. There are many other mines in the area including the Lone Jack mine, the Gargett Mine and the Evergreen Mine. The working of the Boundary Red Mountain gold mine occurred in the second half of the Mt. Baker gold rush, during the 1920s. The Boundary Red Mountain mine was the second biggest strike in the region. Output was about $1.5 million in minerals, mostly gold, from 1913 to 1946. Overall, $25 million in gold was taken from the region. Largest gold strike in the history of the Mount Baker Mining District began on August 23, 1897, when Jack Post (a North Fork area prospector for 30 years) and two others hit the mother lode in a quartz outcrop on Bear Mountain, north of Twin Lakes. His partners were lawyer Russ Lambert and logger Lyman G. Van Valkenburg. The mine became the Lone Jack. The ore originally assayed at $10,750 per ton. The Lone Jack and Boundary Red Mountain are near Mt. Baker, the northernmost major peak in the Washington's Cascade Mountains, rising 10,778 feet, east of Bellingham, and the namesake for the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
