Nevada’s mining industry focus of NNBV’s Sept. 12 Breakfast & Business event
Attributed to world-class deposits of gold and silver, mining is Nevada’s largest export industry.
RENO, Nev. — Nearly 150 years ago, Nevada’s great mineral wealth established a unique geographic region and continues to be an essential sector in the state’s economy.

A regional panel of experts will discuss a variety of topics, including:
- technological advancements occurring in the industry,
- mining’s importance to the state’s social and economic development; and
- the industry’s contributions and methods of protecting the environment.
