Mystery Gold -- Red Arrow Bonanza

Fascinating promotional piece published by the Mystery Gold Mining Company, promoting a gold strike in Southwestern Colorado.

The 2 maps pertain to the Placer Gold mining discovery, which supposedly began at the Red Arrow Mine in 1933.  Located just east of the Red Arrow Mine, Mystery Gold Mining Company was formed and promoted in various newspapers in 1934 and 1935.

The remaining portion of the promotional piece, front and back, extolls the virtues of the discovery, with numerous pictures and testimonials to the size and value of the strike.

The mines was located just south of La Plata, Colorado, which is now a ghost town.
