Scope and Content

Administrative/Biographical History

The Cincinnati Mining Company was incorporated January 18, 1924, by R.E. Seysler, who was president through 1941, G.F. Holman, and W.H. Herrick. Its capitalization was 1,000,000 shares with a par value of 25 cents per share. The Cincinnati Group of claims consisted of five unpatented claims, Cincinnati, Buckeye, Red Doc, Pointer, and Key West, adjacent to the Gold Hunter Mine in the Hunter District near Mullan.

In 1950 the property was taken over by Pilot Silver Company, but its charter was forfeit several years later for failure to file annual reports. In 1954 Henry L. Day reorganized the company but did not retain an interest in it, claiming his only interest was to put the company in good standing with the Secretary of State, although it is not listed in the annual report of the Inspector of Mines from 1951-1958. By 1959 Day Mines, Inc. was owner of all outstanding stock in the company and on September 6 all assets were also transferred to Day Mines. In 1961 the company was merged into Day Mines, Inc., and all claims except Key West were patented.
