First published in June 2002, with additions up to 2022. The Australasian Mining History Association is deeply indebted to the Australian Heritage Commission for granting permission to extract the core of the accompanying mining history bibliography from the work of Peter Donovan & Associates, A Mining History of Australia, Part 1 (1995).
The bibliography is divided into a General list of works which examine mining history on an Australia-wide basis, and lists that focus on topics within specific regions. Each of the lists is sub-divided into a General category; Minerals/elements; Energy Sources; Precious Stones; Associated Social and Economic History; Equipment and Structures; Processes; Mine Transportation; People and Organisations; Heritage Surveys and Archaeology.
