New Rosario Silver Mining Company Records

About this Collection

The New Rosario Silver Mining Company was formed by the purchase of La Eucarnación, Nuevo Rosario, San Francisco, San Pedro and other small mining properties near the Real del Monte mining district of Mexico. In 1870, investors Charles Morris and John Morkill purchased the properties from John Dickinson Brunton, continuing the tradition of British mining operations in the district. The records of the New Rosario Silver Mining Company include a modest amount of business correspondence, articles of agreement, receipts, and reports meant to entice potential stockholders. The collection also includes articles of agreement for other ventures, including the Morro da Gloria Gold Mining Company. View this collection on the contributor's website.
