      General notes:
      In the Hills Manual book from 1900 I could read on page 42 that the Rittenhouse Gold Mining Company had bought the northern part of three claims from the Alamo Mining Company in 1899, which to be indicates that this mine date from that year.
      graphic for visual presentation of text I've not by February 2015 been able to find a Sanborn Fire Insurance map of it, but head frame, hoist house and ore house has survived into modern day and been relocated by the Active Open Pit Mining company to various places in the District according to Google searches.
