About this Item

[Denver? n.d., ca. 1900]. Blueprint map, 12 3/4 x 20 1/2 inches. Old folds. Small split along outer edge of one fold, not affecting map image. Near fine. Not much is known of the Bertha Gold Mining and Milling Company. Stock certificates were issued, and the Denver-based company produced a prospectus and a single "Weekly Report" in 1901, each located by OCLC in only a single copy, at the Denver Public Library. Neither of those publications is described as having a blueprint map, and this map was likely separately issued. It shows more than a dozen properties claimed by the company in a crowded region in Gilpin County, each full claim measuring 1500 feet. Many of the Bertha Company's claims overlap those of other mining concerns, no doubt leading to legal issues. The map was drawn by surveyor S.A. Rank. By 1904 the MINING REPORTER periodical was reporting that the company was being offered for sale. Bookseller Inventory # 1781
