This is the February, 1906 "peace agreement" legal settlement between F. Augustus Heinze and Amalgamated/Anaconda Copper that ended the historical War of the Copper Kings in Butte, Montana.

Pursuant to the agreement, Heinze's companies sold Butte Montana holdings to Amalgamated/Anaconda Copper, including mining claims, smelter, mines, real estate and other property, all of which are detailed in the exhibits. Further, the agreement ended scores of lawsuits between the parties, clogging the Montana court dockets for years, which are also listed in the exhibits.

There are two bound volumes. Each copy/volume contains over 180 typed (both original and carbon-copy) pages.  Features include two original signatures/autographs of Heinze in one volume. The other volume features two original signatures/autographs by John D. Ryan for Anaconda. Thomas F. Cole, President of North Butte Mining, due to enmity and distrust between Heinze and Anaconda acted as an intermediary. Cole's two original signatures/autographs are on the pages that Heinze signed. Mentioned in the agreement, as another intermediary/trustee, was Daniel Guggenheim, a famous mining magnate. These volumes come from the files of Heinze's attorney.

U.S. Senator William Andrews Clark, the second Copper King, previously sold out to Anaconda, a company begun by the third Copper King, Marcus Daly.
