How to Research Mining
This special article is published to help our readers
conduct research into mining claims for themselves. First of all, when
researching mining claims, you practically need to do it in person. I
would strongly suggest that you also call in advance to the County
Recorder to inquire exactly what records they have available. There are
six different volumes of records which mining claims are recorded.
