UTAHNITE SAFETY POWDER COMPANY - Incorporated Under the Laws of Nevada,
March 4th, 1921 - This is a very early certificate from the
company - Stock# 20. Utahnite was a blasting powder discovered and
patented by James Francis O' Brien.
It was said to be more powerful than dynamite or other nitroglycerine
powders, while lacking the dangerous qualities of those explosives.
This made mines a less hazardous place to work. Great history!

played an important part in the history of Goldfield, Nevada, however,
I was unable to locate anything more specific. Feel free to contact me
if you have some information to offer. The certificate is signed by C. W. Hays as president and J. R. Young

seen a few examples from this company over the years. Price -
