2020 Mining Artifact Shows (2-23-20 Update)

2020 Mining Artifact Shows
The following shows are for individuals searching for mining artifacts. You will only see mining artifacts, not many other antiques. So, if you are only interested in mining artifacts these shows will help add to your mining collection.

It is early yet so not all of the schedules have been set. I will be sending out updates that will be noted. Please check on each location in question to make sure they are going to be held. Most of the entries welcome a call if you want additional information. There are at least (2) shows that have not submitted information so far.

The shows are in Arizona, Colorado, and Nevada so far where there has been a lot of mining history. The first one is only a few weeks away, so you need to get busy!  

NOTE: You may want to check the dates and locations prior to the event in case there are unexpected changes
