“GOLD IS WHERE YOU FIND IT” …… Grizzly Adams
Thanks for dropping in for a visit on my claim. You will find Internet Gold Miner You Tube series here. Feel free to watch and comment at no charge. I purely do this for enjoyment and hopefully yours. Starting out in season 1 I mainly concentrated on gold mining. But, I switched it up to a more treasure hunting type thing. Oh don’t fret die hard nugget hunters Johnny “Nuggets” McGrath will still cover some mining cause that’s what started it all in the first place.
Gold mining in Nevada, is a major industry, and one of the largest sources of gold in the world. In 2017 Nevada produced 5,641,538 troy ounces (175,470 kg) of gold worth $7.052 billion, representing 71% of gold produced in the United States and 5.6% of the world’s production. Total gold production recorded from Nevada from 1835 to 2017 totals 200,350,000 troy ounces (6,232 t), worth over US$260.5 billion at 2019 values. Much of Nevada’s gold production comes from large open pits using heap leach recovery.
The Nevada mining industry supported an average 14,387 direct employees in 2017, with about 75,000 additional jobs related to providing goods and services needed by the mining industry. The average pay for mining industry employees during this time was $95,121 per year, second highest of all employment sectors in Nevada.
Furthermore, you will find my mineral claim listings that are for sale here. I sell a few mining claims yearly to help pay for my treasure hunting. Also, if you are looking for help setting up a claim or prospecting for one I can help you with that also. Please contact me for further information via the contact page here.
