    Default WMH Mines Database Update

    Hello history enthusiasts! A few years ago I posted about a mines database I added to my site at Western Mining History. That mines database was using the USGS place names database and was far from comprehensive. For about a year now I have been working on a new mines database that uses the full USGS MRDS database. The result is over 100,000 mines located across the western states. I hope some of you find it useful!

    Well Thank You Very Much!
    The Never Sweat mine in Grant County, NM (http://westernmininghistory.com/mine_detail/10271606) is located about 150 yards due north of my back gate.
    It is on state property now, what was part of the original Johnson homestead.
    We own the 5.7 acres that contains the original building that is now a 3BR home.
    It's hard to believe that 200 tons came out of that, it's quite small.
    The ladders are still in place but I wouldn't trust them, it's also in big time snake country.

    Fantastic resource and thanks for sharing. I've passed it along to some of the groups I'm involved in. I hope you don't mind me referencing it on a few other sites as well?

    Thanks!
