Dan Broockmann, Archaeologist, BLM Elko District -Tuscarora Field Office
Hidden in the shadow of the Cortez gold mine, one of the largest gold mines in the world, are the remnants of an earlier history of mining that help us to understand the evolution of mining in northeastern Nevada. Pioneered in 1863, the Cortez mining district has one of the longest continuous histories of mining in the state. This length of history and it's unique ownership makes the Cortez mining district a pleasure to visit and a privilege to study.
RSVPs will receive an email the day of the presentation with all of the login information. This talk is open to the general public.
