History Nevada Historical Society presents Mining Now and Then

Brought to you via Zoom: Mining activities in Nevada predated the Comstock by many centuries. Deposits of obsidian, opalite, chalcedony, agate, jasper, and quartz occur throughout the state and were utilized by the early inhabitants of Nevada to fashion arrowheads, spear points, and various cutting and scraping tools, some believed to be made 10,000 or more years ago. Mining in Nevada has changed greatly in the last 159 years. Speaker: Sam Macaluso.
