Mining’s economic impact is well-documented and discussed often. Far beyond the facts and figures are the more than 14,000 people behind one of Nevada’s most important industries.
Mining not only provides high-paying jobs for rural Nevadans, it has become a vital part of those communities and to the surrounding urban communities including Las Vegas and Reno. Miners, geologists, hydrologists, engineers, welders and mechanics are just some of the men and women that make this industry possible each day.
