Current issues are 80 pages, filled with useful information. We provide up-to-date information regarding all phases of mining, focusing on precious metals.
We offer plenty of articles detailing mining and prospecting ventures around the world. You'll find up-to-date methods on prospecting, assaying, refining, dredging, mining, detection; legislation, regulations, geology, technology, history, and first-hand accounts from those who have worked the equipment, dug the trenches and the tunnels.
We have the most extensive classified advertising of any prospecting publication, averaging 8-9 pages per issue. You can buy or sell a gold pan, dredge, detector, mining claim, ball mill, crusher, trommel, hauler, crane, or a fully operational mine.
We began in 1931 as the California Mining Journal, focusing on California and the surrounding states. As time passed, our scope broadened to cover North America, with occasional features on other countries. The name changed to ICMJ's Prospecting and Mining Journal to better represent what we really are: a magazine read by prospectors and miners throughout the world.
