Dates of existence


The Western Miner was first published in the late 1920s as the British Columbia Miner. The publication, which, in the words of its first editor, was intended to be a "high-class journal" devoted to the mining industry in Western Canada, was directed primarily at those whose mining interests lay west of Manitoba, particularly within British Columbia, although copies could be found in most Canadian mining camps. It reported on discoveries, the mine labour situation, progress of the industry, and other issues relating to the mining industry. In January 1931, it became The Miner and in 1944 was renamed the Western Miner.
