Virtual Field Trip: Exploration in the Silver State

Tune in as Mark Travis, VP of Exploration at Nevada Silver Corp. shares his experience as an exploration geologist in Nevada! Come along virtually as Mr. Travis shares with students the workings of a Historic Silver Camp as well as how geologists discover minerals in the Silver State. Mining in Nevada dates back to 1849 with the discovery of placer gold by ‘49ers on their way to California. Today, new mineral resources are being discovered and developed as mining is still very important to Nevada’s economy, careers, and the ability to mine a variety of mineral resources for everyday items we depend on.
