FORGOTTEN STOCKHOLDERS
WHO is the most important individual in the conduct of any mining enterprise? The general manager who directs
actual operations? The executive who
guides the manager's hand? The chairman of the board who appoints the officers? They are all exceedingly necessary
wheels in the machine, but, in the last analysis, their tenure of office rests upon the
authority given them by the owners of
the company���the stockholders.
Individual stockholders are the mainspring of the elaborate organization of.the
modern mining company. Often they do
not realize their importance, a situation
which, it has seemed to us, several mining
companies capitalize, it is remarkable
that certain large mining companies are
able to issue sketchy annual financial statements without protest from the patient
stockholders. Some of them, of course,
are owned by only a small group, who probably know all they care to about the position of their company, in which event com
I pany secrecy is pardonable. Bat why
should a large copper-mining company, or,
to take another illustration, an important
zinc-mining and smelting company, both
of whose shares are listed on the Newj
York Stock Exchange and held by thousands of persons���why should not such
companies make all their financial records
public, instead of publishing indecipherable accounts?
Stockholders are entitled to the fullest j
information about the investments they
have made and the company they own. Occasionally one finds this progressive view
shared by mining company officials. The
most pronounced comment we have seen
recently in this respect is a statement contained in the Silver King Coalition Company's 1923 report. The following refreshing���even startling���sentence appears:
" . . . Permit me to remind the stockholders that all reasonable information
respecting the operations of this property
is at their disposal and inquiries from them
are welcome. The loyalty and support of
stockholders is a vital matter in the success of any operation, and I urge that the
stockholders continue to show the same
interest and support to the executive officers as heretofore."
So speaks W. Mont Ferry, vice-president and managing director of one of the
largest silver-lead mines in the United
States. The Silver King report is entirely
in keeping with Mr. Ferry.s declaration.
It is a clean, unveiled record of a splendid
year, of which both he and the stockholders may well be proud. Certainly the
confidence of stockholders is not a thing to
be treated lightly. We recommend Mr.
Ferry's remarks to other directors.���Engineering and Mining Journal-Press.
