III EHLN Conference – Amsterdam 2019 – Mining related papers
During the last ELHN2019 Conference in Amsterdam, many papers on mining history were discussed.
We estimate that this is a sign that mining history is still in good health and probably it’s growing in interest among researcher.
This is why we decided to gather every mining history related paper which were discussed during the conference, in order not to loose the opportunity to have a shared overview on topics and their authors.
