THE BUNKER HILL GOLD AND SILVER MINING COMPANY, 1892

Irwin, Gunnison County, Colorado.  This stock certificate was issued in 1892 and uncancelled, meaning it was never returned to the company and surfaced in the papers of a private estate.  It is a small-sized certificate; however, it has the location of the mining property, "Irwin, Colo." printed on the front of the certificate, and it also exhibits a unique vignette of Bunker Hill, the Irwin town site, and the mines surrounding the town.  This original stock certificate is in near fine condition.

This original Bunker Hill Gold Mining Company stock certificate is accompanied by a very scarce Leadville, Colorado check signed by RICHARD IRWIN, the Canadian after whom the Town of Irwin, in Gunnison County, Colorado, was named.  Richard Irwin was an express rider who decided it might be more interesting, as well as profitable, to prospect throughout the Rocky Mountains.  He arrived in Colorado in the early 1860s and thoroughly traveled the western half of the state.  One of the first mining areas Irwin prospected was the Hardscrabble District in Custer County, Colorado.  At the time, the Bassick Mine and others around the towns of Rosita, Querida, and Silver Cliff were producing admirable quantities of silver and gold.  A few years later, Richard Irwin joined the rush to the Leadville silver mining district, and then decided to try his fortune in the Gunnison Country after rich mineral discoveries were made there.  Irwin was in Ruby Gulch in 1879 when the territory was still owned by the Ute Indians and several prospectors had been killed in what became known as Deadman's Gulch, near Cement Creek.  Irwin found himself invested in the Ruby Chief and Forest Queen mines.

This original Leadville, Colorado check was issued on The Miners' Exchange Bank of Leadville, Colorado, July 25, 1878, and signed by Richard Irwin on the back.
