Mines, Mining and Miners

Mining sources in the Western History and Genealogy Department include photographs, manuscripts, prospectuses, maps, magazines, and directories. These materials document the development of mining in the West. Our maps show mining claims and mining districts. Digital images show mines, machinery, ore processing facilities, mine interiors, mills, smelters and miners of all types. For mining accident accidents in locations other than Colorado, please see the Gerald E. Sherard Collection Mine Accident Index located at the Colorado School of Mines.
