Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology

The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, part of the Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno, is an active and interesting source for studying mining and geology in the Southwestern United States. The Bureau's website includes quite a bit of information that would be of interest to students, researchers, and laypeople alike. Users will find information about current research projects on a variety of topics, an archive of presentations, and many different geologic maps of Nevada. Under the site's Data/Imagery/Indexes section, visitors will find interactive maps with data on geothermal resources, mineral resources, quaternary faults, and more. Most of the information provided pertains to the state of Nevada, but would also prove useful for instructors who could use the state's rich mining and geologic history and resources as teaching examples.
