Inc.1889 to acquire gold-producing properties in the Gastineau Channel Area. John Treadwell was sent by San Francisco interests in 1881 to check reports on gold in the area. He opened it up andstarted the company. The mines were rich, and became famous. This company bought out all interests for $4.000.000. The Treadwell mines were at their peak in 1915.
