Model Thirty Caterpillar

Manufactured between 1925 and 1932, this handy machine served the Lucky Strike Mine near Cordova Alaska. Although the mine was a bust, producing only 9 oz. of silver and 16 oz. gold, Dr. William H. Chase, doctor and mayor of Cordova (for 24 terms) was able to attract investment in the mine for over 50 years.
