CountyMineRecords This data set represents the relationship of documents that have been referenced to specific MILO point(s) in a many to many relationship. County Mine Records are hyperlinks to scans of the literature originally found in DOGAMI published and unpublished hardcopy holdings. Scans have been grouped and combined into single PDFs that may include maps, letters, news clippings, photographs, and reports. Note that some PDF files are very large. These documents were then related to associated MILO points by DOGAMI personnel.
