The entire Death Valley region was prospected, and as early as (Mining and Scientific Press, Dec. 21, ) mining districts were established at Coso, the Argus Range, Panamint Range, and the Washington mining district which embraced the entire territory east of Death Valley to the stateline and south to Salt Spring. However, in the Death. After seeing silver ore emerge from one of the mills of the Comstock Lode, Samuel Clemens (tired of working under his brother) began to spend much of his time in the mining districts of Humboldt and Esmeralda.

Scattered over its sparsely settled and generally arid expanse the State of Nevada contains approximately centers of past or present mining activity. Some of these mining districts, such as the Comstock,1 Eureka,2 Tonopah,3 and Goldfield,4 have added millions to the world's wealth in precious metals and have been given thorough geologic study.

All sites shown on this map have had some form of production activity during and The second edition includes the names of the mining districts which were only shown as a symbol marking the center of the district on the first edition map. This map was prepared in cooperation with the Nevada Division of Minerals.

The old mining districts of Nevada were exceedingly satisfactory to the possessors of claims, and those who wanted to be owners up to a short time since -- now there is a perfect stampede to Reese.

Sediment hosted gold deposits in Nevada were first mined in the s from open pit mines with large tonnage and low grade resources. Since that time, continuing exploration and discovery have identified extraordinary resources, and together these deposits now form the second-largest gold endowment on Earth, surpassed only by the Witwatersrand Gold Fields of South Africa.
