This, our second index, covers issues 11 to 20 of the UK Journal of Mines & Minerals, published between 1992 and 2000. Information about the minerals from a locality can be found in the locality index. This is organised hierarchically by country, county or state, then site name. To avoid the confusion produced by the repeated late twentieth century boundary changes in the British Isles, the county boundaries defined by the Local Government Act of 1974 are adopted almost exclusively.

The new counties and county boroughs brought in by the Lieutenancies Act of 1997 are not used.

especially in show reports and the like, have largely been ignored and minerals
that are considered suspect or discredited from particular localities have
