How to Research Mining Claims
This special article is published to help our readers conduct research into mining claims for themselves. First of all, when researching mining claims, you practically need to do it in person. I would strongly suggest that you also call in advance to the County Recorder to inquire exactly what records they have available. There are six different volumes of records which mining claims are recorded.
