Our Next Show :

The team and mineral stock have now returned from the Sainte Marie-Aux-Mines show in France. We would like to thank everyone who joined us at either the Crystal Classics booth or in the UK Mining Ltd. tent.

Our next major outing is to Denver in September.  This year, as in previous years, Crystal Classics will have two rooms, 225 and 227 for the "Denver Fine Mineral Show"  to be held at the Denver Marriott West Hotel from 12th - 15th September, 2018 and for the first time UK Mining Ventures Ltd will be exhibiting at the Denver Gem & Mineral Show (known as “The Main Show” at the Denver Mart) from 14th - 16th September, 2018.
