# 3079 for 20 shares to A Blowers & Company trustees. Signed by president Joseph Clark and secretary. Dateline San Francisco 1879. Incorporated Sep. 20, 1877. Located at Black Canon District, Gillette, Yavapai. Not cancelled. Crocker & Co. printer. Eight assessment stamps on reverse. Small dog ear lower left. No pin holes, edge of discoloration issues. The Black Canon district lies immediately east of Humbug and Pine Grove Districts, on the eastern slope of the Bradshaw Mountains. The ledges in this section are almost exclusively gold-bearing ; the formation, slate and granite. The Valanciana mine, the oldest location in the district, was discovered in 1860 by Hutchinson and Carpenter. It has yielded about $45,000. The Iconoclast, owned by Wickenberg and Cochran, has a vein 1 6 feet wide, which aver- ages $25 per ton. As the ore is crushed by an arastra, only that which has been closely assorted is worked. This gives $100 peton. The Clipper, owned by Curtis and Trotter, is also worked by an arastra, and yields $100 per ton. The Gillespie has a six- foot vein, which is said to average $40 per ton. Sufficient rock is taken out to keep two arastras running. The Nigger Brown mine, owned by John Anderson, has ore which pays about $25 per ton. There are altogether about sixty locations in the district, many of which have been sufficiently prospected to prove that they possess good milling ore. No mills have yet been erected, all the ore being worked by the slow process of arastras. Wood is scarce, and lumber has to be hauled 25 miles.
