The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) stimulates economic diversification and development in the state, saves lives, and protects property from natural disasters. NBMG is the statewide research and public service unit of the University of Nevada, Reno that serves as the state geological survey. NBMG's mission, to provide the state's needs for geological and energy- and mineral-resource information and research, is defined in its enabling legislation. Established by the Nevada Legislature as a department within the public service division of the Nevada System of Higher Education, NBMG is part of the Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering within the College of Science and one of the Statewide Programs at the University of Nevada, Reno. NBMG scientists conduct research and publish reports that focus on the economic development, public safety, and quality of life in urban and rural areas of Nevada.

This report provides details on the activities of NBMG scientists and support staff during the past two years.
