New Mexico Mining Heritage Guide

by John R. Park

The New Mexico Mining Heritage Guide includes 318 entries and 22 text inserts on 164 pages.  118 photographs, and 25 maps, illustrate the entries.

Steve Voynick in Rock & Gem Magazine Oct 2003 wrote, "Anyone with even a passing interest in mining and minerals should have this guide on hand when traveling through any part of New Mexico... Although intended basically as a fieldguide, this well-written book also offers fine armchair reading."
