The $800 million project will provide 300 jobs during production. It will be the only US mine where nickel is the primary targeted mineral, with about 360 million pounds to be extracted.
Even as late as 1906, Delamar was second only to Tonopah and Goldfield in production outshining many better known areas. Since the first discoveries, more than 700,000 ounces of gold have been produced from the mines here.
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.
How to read a river to find gold. In this second of a two-part series, we will take a look at how a river’s grade affects the formation of paystreaks, and how to go about reading a river to see the various catches and parts of a stream where...
