Beautifully engraved unissued certificate from the Esperance Gold, Silver, and Copper Mining Company dated 1863. This historic document has an ornate border around it with vignettes of ornate shield with anchor emblem & "HOPE" on banner above and of dog's head at bottom center. This item is over 131 years old. According to Holabird, the Longfellow mine is the only mine reported operating in the Big Oak Flat district in the State Mineralogist's report of 1888. The ore in this mine, which may have been characteristic of the district, was "pockety", that is running in isolated masses in the quartz. The mine was developed by a 135 ft shaft with drifts 150 and 125 ft in an easterly and a westerly direction. The property had been located in 1854 and from that time to the time the report was written, had had "several successive owners, all of whom are said to have retired well recompensed".
