Unrecorded, illustrated report for this international mining venture. The Pacific Mining & Smelting Company had its headquarters in New York, and its principal mines and operations in the regions near Fundacion, in the state of Sonora, Mexico. This "first annual report" provides a glowing account of the progress and earnings made by the company in its first year since it was formed as a consolidation of the Douglas Mining Company, the Mexican Exploration Mining Company, and several additional, smaller subsidiary companies. The report also provides a detailed description of the company's holdings and operations, which included numerous claims and a large concession from the Mexican government. A folding map of Sonora that locates company claims and delineates transportation connections, as well as a series of photographic reproductions depicting their smelting and processing plant in Fundacion complement the detailed report. The frontispiece reproduces three panoramas of the plant from different angles. Not in OCLC.
