WMS Newsletters and WMS Field Notes
Newsletter front cover
All of the more recent WMS Newsletters are available here for download. Earlier WMS Newsletters are slowly being made available in electronic format - some in MS Word, but also in Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) files - as and when I get the chance to scan, OCR and upload them. It's intended that in the fullness of time all of them will be made available.
An index to mines (and other notable subjects) in the Newsletters (from No.1 to No.53) was developed by the late Alasdair Neill, and is also available for download - see right and below.
If you're having trouble downloading, accessing or opening an item, then please do contact the WMS Webmaster.
