    Historical Context

    The Denver City Consolidated Silver Mining Co. was incorporated in Colorado in 1880. The company had properties on Fryer Hill in Leadville, Lake County.

     

    Whitaker B. Wright purchased three claims on Fryer Hill for $195,000 to form the company. The three claims were the:

     

    • Shamus O'Brien
    • Denver City
    • Quadrilateral

     

    Despite the involvement of Whitaker - who was later determined to be another of times' common frauds - and a very dubious output at first, the company managed to stay in business into the 1920s.
