Goldmine, established in September 1974, by founder Brian Bukantis out of Fraser Michigan [1] is an American magazine that focuses on the collectors' market for records, tapes, CDs, and music-related memorabilia. [2] Each issue features news articles, interviews, discographies, histories, current reviews on recording stars of the past and present. Discographies are featured, listing all known releases. Coverage includes Rock, Blues, Country, Folk and Classical. Other features include classified ads, trends, and a show calendar. At one point its chief competitor was DISCoveries (with more of an emphasis on 1950s oldies) which later was purchased by the same owner before folding into it as a single publication.

United States Federal republic in North America

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States or America, is a country composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions. At 3.8 million square miles, the United States is the world's third or fourth largest country by total area and is slightly smaller than the entire continent of Europe's 3.9 million square miles. With a population of over 327 million people, the U.S. is the third most populous country. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the largest city by population is New York City. Forty-eight states and the capital's federal district are contiguous in North America between Canada and Mexico. The State of Alaska is in the northwest corner of North America, bordered by Canada to the east and across the Bering Strait from Russia to the west. The State of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific Ocean. The U.S. territories are scattered about the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, stretching across nine official time zones. The extremely diverse geography, climate, and wildlife of the United States make it one of the world's 17 megadiverse countries.

The magazine is produced on newsprint in a tabloid format. It recently promised a radical overhaul, complete with more reviews and the return of old favorite features. However, the most noticeable change is that the format is a much-shrunken letter size document, no longer on the old broadsheet. It remains published by F+W Media. The magazine was published bimonthly from its start in 1974 to 1977. [1] Then it began to be published monthly. [1] The headquarters is in Iola, Wisconsin. [1]
