Mining Journal Honored as Prospecting Magazine of the Year!
September 2014 by StaffFor the 16th consecutive year, ICMJ’s Prospecting and Mining Journal was voted “Prospecting Magazine of the Year” by the Best O’ North East (BONE) Treasure Hunters.
BONE is based in Keene, New Hampshire, but the group draws prospectors and detecting enthusiasts from across the US and Canada for an annual four-day detecting hunt held at several locations in New Hampshire.
We are humbled and honored by their continued recognition!

Not much has changed along the original stage road that runs easterly from an old schoolhouse northeast of Nogales into the Patagonia Mountains of southern Arizona. Marked on the maps as Duquesne Road, the route has been in use for over 130 years, climbing from the hot desert floor to an almost 6,000-foot elevation pass before dropping back down the eastern slope of the mountains to reach the old mining camps of Washington, Duquesne, and Lochiel.
