November 2017 by Staff
1947 - 2017
Nancy Glenn of Action Mining Services passed away on September 22, 2017 of natural causes. Nancy had been a key part of Action Mining ever since it incorporated in 1979. She worked there with her husband Mike, and their daughter Jessica who joined them in 2005. Nancy also ran Popular Mining magazine throughout the 1980s and 1990s until it’s last issue in 1996.
Action Mining is a long-time advertiser, so we here at ICMJ have had the pleasure of working with Nancy for almost three decades. We’ve always known Nancy to be very easy-going, friendly, and very sharp. We are saddened by her passing.
Nancy will be greatly missed by many, including her family, all of those at Action Mining and by all who knew and had the pleasure of working with her. She was a wonderful person, wife, mom and grandmother!

Sondra was known as one to share her knowledge with all. She touched the lives of countless individuals. She earned the respect and confidence of those around her and left the world a better place. She is greatly missed.
New exploration on land that was scoured for gold years ago near Livengood indicates the property could be developed into a mine on a scale similar to the Fort Knox Mine, according to a Colorado-based company.
Over 135 million ounces of gold were produced in Nevada between 1858 and 2001, 107 million of that total being since 1965. Now, the so-called “Silver State” is the leading gold producer in the nation.
