Santa Cruz Mines and Smelters Co. Special Purpose $100 Bond issued in 1906. Bond #C2182. Payable in gold coin. Signed by president George A. Braton and Charles E. Prior as secretary. This company was formed as a reorganization of the Alto Consolidated Mines, Smelting and Transportation Co., which operated the Alto Mine in the Salero District in the Santa Rita Mountains and the Mowry Mines Co. which operated the Mowry Mine in the Patagonia Mountains. A rail line between Patagonia and Mowry was being considered allowing Alto ore to be treated at the Mowry smelter, however, the panic of 1907 put an end to those plans in July of that year and the Alto mine reverted to the original company the same year. The Mowry was the first major deposit that t was rediscovered and located by Americans after this region was acquired through the Gadsden Purchase. Attached are two pages of coupons (15).
