WHEREAS, a goal of the State Historical Records Advisory Board is to increase the awareness of the valuable role archives play in preserving and enhancing knowledge of our cultural, intellectual, social and governmental heritage; and

WHEREAS, Nevada citizens are invited to explore their history and visit the sites that house our documentary heritage;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BRIAN SANDOVAL, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim October 2017 as ARCHIVES MONTH IN NEVADA.”

The NBMG Mining District Files consist largely of historical and current maps, reports, articles, photographs, correspondence, assays, production reports, and reserve information on all aspects of mining in Nevada. These have largely been donated to the NBMG over the years from individuals, companies, and other government agencies.
