1) Le Nouveau Monde-A French company that operated the Josephine, Pine Tree and Mount Ophir mines near Mariposa CA. Nos 35226-35230, 5 shares 25 Francs each.2)Anglo-Californian Gold Mining-" No. 6301 issued to Louisa Alaria 1853. Not cancelled. According to Filer (Holabird), this was the largest foreign issue of a California Gold Rush venture that we know of. The company literally sold thousands of shares. The company began as the Anglo California Gold Mining & Dredging Co. in 1849., owned by Luke Williams. It was the last of Williams "gold bubble company promotions." Williams sent Henry Vere Huntley to Calaveras River in 1849. Huntely was unsuccessful, so he hired miners of the Quartz Rock Mariposa Gold Co. and arranged a deal with them. While he was in America, the name of the company had changed. The lack of progress and name changing made the directors of the company very suspicious, and they forced Williams out in April 1851. The new directors decided to crush and process ore mined by others, and sent two steam engines and crushing mills on the Augusta that year.
