Amercian Manganese Company at Crimora

I recently purchased several Shenandoah Valley Railroad freight payment
receipts paid by "Am Mang Co." I am assuming that the abbreviation is for
the American Manganese Company at Crimora. Does anyone have information
about this company, such as when it discontinued operations? I assume that
it must have done mining and smelting during the 1890s. An Internet search
isn't turning up any corporate history from that era. The agent at Crimora
during 1889 was C. M. Myers.

Thank you,

Frank Scheer
