Easton Lead and Silver Mining Company mine, Easton, Bristol Co., Massachusetts, USAThe Easton Lead and Silver Mining and Manufacturing Company was formed in 1825 by Jonathan Leonard and Rudolpho Leonard.
Hitchcock (1841) says the "company formed and incorporated with a capital of eighty thousand dollars... The fruits of their labor may be seen in an excavation, in red granite nearly one hundred feet deep, at present nearly filled with water. I could not find a particle of ore, of any kind, in the fragments blasted out. A final stop was put to the work, by the killing of two men in blasting."
