Beautifully engraved certificate from the Tonopah Extension Mining Company issued in 1906. This historic document has an ornate border around it and an underprint of miners working a claim. This item is hand signed by the Company’s Officers and is over 95 years old. Founded in 1902, Goldfield boasted a population of 30,000 during its boom year of 1906 when it produced $11million in gold. The town probably has the longest bar in the history of mining towns. The bar, Tex Rickard's Northern, was so long it required 80 tenders to serve its customers. By 1912, ore production had dropped to $5 million. Those who recognized the signs began to leave and Goldfield eventually became what it is today-a ghost town. A drive south on highway 95 from Tonopah will take you to Goldfield-one of the must see towns The Tonopah Extension Mining Company was formed in in 1902 Arizona and had its main offices in New York City. The company controlled almost 700 acres of mineral-bearing ground in the Tonopah district, most on the west side of the Tonopah Mining Company's property. The company had three major shafts with about 33 miles of lateral work. The three mines - the No. 2, Victor, and McKane - were all more than 1,500' deep. The deepest, the Victor, was almost 2,200'. The company built a 30-stamp cyanide mill in 1910, which was later enlarged to 50 stamps.
