This directory contains the digital data for of2023-01, Nevada Active Mines and Energy Producers.

The data consists of a shapefile (.shp) of the producers layer shown on of2023-01.

Site locations and information in this layer were obtained from a variety of published and non published sources with the last updates made in January 2023. All sites shown on this map have had some form of production activity during 2021.

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

Prepared in cooperation with the Nevada Division of Minerals.

Folders containing files:

MINES
The mines shown produced in 2021. Active mining involved extraction from open pits, underground mines, other types 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 main sources of information for these mines are Major Mines of Nevada 2021 compiled by the Nevada Division of Minerals and NBMG’s The Nevada Mineral Industry 2021. These two reports were largely compiled from annual status and production reports submitted to the Nevada Division of Minerals and Nevada Department of Taxation Net Proceeds of Minerals Bulletin. 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 2021 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 2021 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 2021, Major Mines of Nevada 2021, Petroleum Data Map of Nevada (2007), and the NBMG Subsurface Database Explorer interactive map.

MINING DISTRICTS
Nevada mining district locations are 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.
