Site locations and information on this map were obtained from a variety of published and non-published sources with the last updates made in January 2019. All sites shown on this map have had some form of production activity during 2017.

This map was prepared in cooperation with the Nevada Division of Minerals.

MINES

The metal mines shown were active in 2017. Industrial mineral mines that are shown had production in 2017. The gravel operations are those producing more than 100,000 tons annually. Active mines and their locations were determined from a variety of sources, including the "Directory of Mining and Milling Operations" in NBMG’s The Nevada Mineral Industry 2017. The main sources of information that went into creating this directory were the Directory of Nevada Mine Operations, January–December 2017, compiled by the mine inspectors at Nevada Mine Safety and Training, and Major Mines of Nevada 2017, compiled by the Nevada Division of Minerals. These two sources were supplemented with information, especially for 2017, from other sources, such as company reports, LR2000 (BLM), magazine and journal articles, Net Proceeds of Minerals Bulletin, topographic maps, Google Earth, and contact with people in the mining industry. The sites generally represent the main open pit or portal location and are accurate for a display scale of 1:1,000,000 or smaller.

GEOTHERMAL PRODUCTION SITES

Geothermal site locations are from the “Geothermal Section” in NBMG’s The Nevada Mineral Industry 2017 and information provided by the Nevada Division of Minerals.

OIL FIELDS

Oil field locations are from Assessment of the Potential for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration with Enhanced Oil Recovery in Nevada, 2007, with updated information provided in 2017 by the Nevada Division of Minerals. Only currently producing oil fields are shown. Oil field symbol locations are based on initial discovery well. More detailed information on the oil fields, individual wells, company contact information, and production can be found in Assessment of the Potential for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration with Enhanced Oil Recovery in Nevada, 2007, NBMG’S The Nevada Mineral Industry 2017, Major Mines of Nevada 2017, Petroleum Data Map of Nevada, 2007, and the NBMG Oil and Gas Well Search website.

MINING DISTRICTS

The map includes the names of the mining districts shown with a symbol marking the center of the district polygon—which does not necessarily represent the center of mining activity in that district. Mining district locations are taken from NBMG Report 47, Mining Districts of Nevada.

ABOUT THE GIS FILES

The data consists of a shapefile (.shp) of the producers layer shown on OF2019-01.

A layer file (.lyr) is also provided for symbolizing the data within ArcMap.

Folders containing files:
\of2019-01z
|\Data (contains ESRI shapefile and layer file)
|
|\pdfs (contains the final PDF files of the map plates)

These files were produced using ArcGIS Desktop version 10.5.1.

The projection of the shapefile is UTM NAD 83 Zone 11.
