fun to explore, and will be packed with images and information.
"e-Museum" collections include: tools, dynamite
boxes, blasting items, assay equipment, assay reports, ore cars, aerial tramway items, bottles, ore specimens, letters, personal
writings, poems, maps, drawings, sketches, documents of all kinds. In addition to all that, the largest digital collection
of Utah mining, mining related, oil, land, water, banking, railroading, and other company stock certificate images ever published
to the web including some of the rarest known.
SPECIAL NOTE: I have not been able to devote much
time to the wesite this past year. My father passed away last January. Family needs and estate matters have consumed my time.
Having said that, with 2022, regular updates and new items will be added monthly if not more often! All kinds of new things
to explore and learn about will be shared! Thank-you for your patience! Yes, I know I still have some links to correct as
well. All will be addressed.
Now on the "Home Page" we feature a certificate issued by the Watson Mining Company, West Mountain
(Bingham) District, Utah.
There are now 1801 stock certificates posted to this site!!!!!!!
Regular updates will now resume. More certificates, letterhead,images and checks coming soon!
We have the largest and greatest collection of Utah documents published
on the Web!
The TREASURE HOUSE RELICS PROJECT (THRP)
is the name of this undertaking. I share this project
here. 30 years of exploring, research, and collecting
all brought together in one place. The goal, to create the most complete, comprehensive digital archive of early hard-rock
mining in Utah ever published to the web. I'm just getting started and it will take years to add it all, so check back often
to see what's new.
