Welcome to the blog of the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG). NBMG is the state’s geological survey, whose mission is to provide geological information critical to economic development, public safety, and quality of life. Visit our website at www.nbmg.unr.edu to learn more. Note that in early 2015, NBMG launched a new shopping cart, so old blog articles with links to publications will no longer work. Please visit our new shopping cart at http://pubs.nbmg.unr.edu for any publications.
