Articles from the Mining History Bulletin

Many articles from the Bulletin, and in a few cases, the entire bulletin have been scanned and converted to .PDF format. Older issues were reproduced from typed text, more recent ones are higher quality digital texts.
This is not the entire content of the bulletins but it includes nearly 800 articles.
Bulletins from recent years are not on-line, copies may be purchased from the Museum in person or by post and are also available in the library (held at the museum).
This page allows you to search the article titles which then link to the article. It does not search within the articles.

The content of these files is copyright. If you wish to make any other than personal use of any part of any PDMHS publication you must contact PDMHS to seek permission. Copyright is either that of the original author or of PDMHS.
