The Alaska Mexican Gold Mining Company was one of three companies owned by John Treadwell - the others being the Alaska Treadwell and the Alaska United. The company was incorporated on November 17, 1891.
The mine, which was located on Douglas Island, Treadwell, Alaska, was discovered in 1881. Output continued through 1917 when a flood caused a cave-in.
The Treadwell mines pioneered in the field of low cost mining and the use of hydroelectric power, and were an Alaska mining stalwart.
