Eureka! magazine was founded in 1992 by Dave Thorpe, James Van Fleet and Dave Johnson, and published as a paper magazine until 2000, when it was converted to an all-digital online publication. That website was shut down in late 2022 and, by permission from Dave Thorpe, the content has been transferred here, to be hosted by the Mineralogical Record. New articles of interest to mining artifact collectors and historians are welcome and may be submitted to Wendell Wilson at email@example.com.
The Mining Artifact Collector magazine was founded in the Fall of 1988 by Ted Bobrink, Len Gaska, Jim Steinberg and Mark Bohannan, with subsequent help from Wendell Wilson, Tony Moon and Deric English. It lasted until Spring 1994 (22 issues). We have had all of those pre-digital issues scanned (with Ted’s permission) as well as the pre-digital Eureka! issues, through the generosity of Doug Miller, and have posted them here as well. A third journal, The Collector’s Mining Review, was founded in Fall 1996 by Lane Griffin, Eric Twitty and Deric English; it lasted until December 1998 (8 issues). We have, with permission, scanned and posted those issues here as well. But the granddaddy of all mining artifact publications was Henry Pohs’ newsletter for collectors, entitled The Underground Lamp Post, published from 1968 until Henry’s death in 1999 (62 issues). Our thanks to Hal Post for having had the whole run scanned, and to Eloise Pohs for giving us permission to post that publication here as well, making the Eureka! Web page the world’s most comprehensive archive of information for the collector of mining artifacts and memorabilia. Enjoy! And while you’re at it, please check out some of the other publications and databases offered by the Mineralogical Record.
