    Default mining tool replicas

    : Hello. I work at a mining and mineral museum and we have a large replica of a mining tunnel that we are planning an interpretive program for, but we need mining tools in this tunnel. However, we can not use artifacts as they might be destroyed due to high humidity and light. Does anyone have any ideas how to get or make replicas of mining tools used in the gold rush in california? thank you

    :

    : What kind of tools do you plan to exhibit? Is your tunnel full size or built to scale? Can you send me more info about your museum? I am involved with a group in Oregon which is starting a mining museum...perhaps we can help each other. Please e-mail me @ photopro@eoni.com. Thanks, Stephen
