Certificate Vignette

June 1, 1880

The Empire Mining Company of Utah was incorporated in May, 1878. Its property comprises a group of fourteen overlapping locations 1 1/2 miles southwest of Park City and about half a mile west of the Ontario. The average size of these is 1,500 by 200 feet. The Clara Davis alone is developed to a considerable extent. This claim was discovered in 1871 ; but little was done, however, until the organization of the company. Since that time it has been worked by a large force until October, 1880, when operations ceased until the Utah Eastern railroad should be completed, which would lower the price of coal and lessen the expenses $60 per day. The company also owns a 20-acre mill site, 1 1/2J miles north of Park City, on which much grading had been done for the erection of a 30-stamp silver mill. Much of the machinery is on the ground,but financial troubles seem likely to prevent its completion. The capital stock of the company is $10,000,000 in 100,000 shares.
