Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Honolulu Mining Company, J.W. Tabor, president, was incorporated on April 4, 1906, with a capitalization of 1,000,000 shares, par value $1.00. The property consisted of 4 unpatented claims, 60 acres, adjacent to the Hercules Mine, in the Lelande Mining District. Prior to 1923 it had two tunnels totalling 1400 feet. It was one of several mining companies over which the Hercules acquired control in 1924. For several years it was actively prospected along a 2400 foot crosscut from the Hercules No. 4 tunnel. Then, in 1929, the Honolulu was one of a group of mines combined to form the Ambergris Consolidated Mining Company.
