The discovery of silver in the Town of Cobalt in the early 1900s gave birth to many mines. Small operators had no refining, smelting or even milling facilities and relied exclusively on major mining companies for those services. Shippers of ore had no method of ensuring quality and representative sampling and accurate assaying of their production. This resulted in questionable premium formulas for product received.
