The following shows are for the mining purists. You will only see mining artifacts, no other antiques. So, if you are only interested in mining artifacts these shows will help add to your mining collection.
The shows are in Arizona, Colorado, California and Kentucky where there has been a lot of mining history. The first one is only a couple weeks away, so you need to get busy!
