Our History

While the Journal has changed hands and titles a few times since its beginning in 1931, the goal still remains the same—to provide miners with a voice, a marketplace for their goods and services, and maybe teach them something new.

ICMJs Prospecting and Mining Journal has readers in every state and 23 countries. It's now distributed monthly to paid subscribers, newsstands and various tradeshows, with over 40,000 monthly readers and approximately 42,000 monthly website visitors.
