About Franklin Mining
Franklin Mining, Inc. (FMNJ) is a publicly-traded, international mining and exploration company headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada with offices in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The company's principal U.S mining property was the Franklin Mines located near Idaho Springs in Clear Creek County, Colorado. Started as a Colorado exploration and mining company in 1864, Franklin Mining and Mill Co. worked multiple mines located approximately 1.5 miles north of Idaho Springs, Colorado.
The company quickly grew to become a number of underground mining operations and its own flotation mill producing concentrates of gold, silver, lead, and zinc. Mine operations began in 1865 and continued until the United State government curtailed gold mining during World War I. Mine operations, allowed to resume during the Great Depression, were again curtailed following the outbreak of World War II. There has been limited mining activity at the Franklin Mines since.
Franklin Consolidated Mining Co, Inc. had been formed under the laws of the State of Delaware in 1976 for the purpose of acquiring and developing mineral properties. The original Franklin Mines then acquired in 1989 and mining and milling operation began that same year.
