Colorado Mining Stock & Bond Certificate Catalogue

A listing of Colorado mining stocks and bonds


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colorado has a rich history of mines & mining and the mining stock certificates presented below are just a few examples representing the financing of the mines and milling operations throughout the state.  Mining in Colorado has taken on many faces: Gold, Silver, Copper, Tungsten, Molybdenum, Uranium, Coal and even Diamonds.   This rich mining history began with the "Pikes Peak Gold Rush" in 1859 and continues today.   The sheer number of mines in Colorado shaped the states history, culture, and topography.  Today, Scripophily allows us to reach back to those glory days of the Gold & Silver mines and the towns & districts that shaped Colorado.  We offer collectable certificates from many different mining districts throughout the state at various price ranges.   We are pleased to present the following Colorado mining stock certificates for your collection!

Alturas Shale Oil Company

Grand Valley, Garfield County

Issued / Uncancelled, dated 1926.

Properties included the Hope mine in the Grand Valley, Garfield County.

Oil shale has been a boom and bust industry in Colorado for over 100 years.   Interest in oil shale and the stock for oil shale companies began to get red hot around 1918 due to an article in National Geographic and government interest in surveying for oil shale deposits.   The topic is heating up again today, as Colorado has the largest deposits in the word of oil shale, from which liquid oil is difficult and expensive to extract.
