Commodities Records

The digital records available here are scans of the literature originally found in DOGAMI published and unpublished hardcopy holdings. Scans have been combined into single PDFs that may include maps, letters, news clippings, photographs, and reports.

This digital archive is evolving. Please contact us if you have suggestions or find errors. The valiant scanning persistence of Tomas Benson is gratefully acknowledged.

Interested parties should contact their local land use authority to verify zoning and applicable land use ordinances. Respect the rights of private property owners. Understand that recreation in or around inactive mine sites is extremely dangerous and can result in serious injury or death. Stay out and stay alive!
