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 2021. All sites shown on this map have had some form of production activity during 2019.

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

Description of GIS files:

The data consists of a shapefile (.shp) of the producers layer shown on OF2021-01.

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

Folders containing files:
\of2021-01z
|\data (contains ESRI shapefile and layer file)
|
|\pdfs (contains the final PDF files of the map plates)

These files were produced using ESRI ArcGIS Desktop version 10.7.1.
The projection of the shapefile is UTM NAD 83 Zone 11.

MINES

The mines shown produced in 2019. Active mining involved extraction from open pits, underground mines, some other type of surface activity, and one brine operation. If active mining had ceased temporarily or permanently, production continued from the leach pads, reprocessing old tailings, or stockpiles. The gravel operations are those producing more than 100,000 tons annually. The main sources of information for these mines are the “Directory of Mining and Milling Operations” in NBMG’s The Nevada Mineral Industry 2019 and Major Mines of Nevada 2019 compiled by the Nevada Division of Minerals. These two documents were largely compiled from annual production reports submitted to the Nevada Division of Minerals and supplemented with information from other sources such as company reports, LR2000 (BLM), magazine and journal articles, Nevada Department of Taxation Net Proceeds of Minerals Bulletin, Nevada Mine Safety and Training Directory of Nevada Mine Operations, topographic maps, Google Earth, and contact with people in the mining industry. Thee 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 2019 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 2019 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 2019, Major Mines of Nevada 2019, Petroleum Data Map of Nevada, 2007, and the NBMG Oil and Gas Well Search website.

MINING DISTRICTS

Nevada mining district locations are taken from NBMG Report 47, Mining Districts of Nevada. The location of the symbol represents the approximate center of the mining district polygon as shown in the original report.
