The NvMA and the Nevada Division of Minerals co-host the workshop, which allows Nevada K-12 teachers to receive a continuing education credit with no cost to attend. Participating educators spend each day learning about Nevada minerals and geology from area experts and touring area mine operations and museums.

Join us July 17-18 for the 2018 Northern Nevada Mineral Workshop. We are offering two fun-filled days of rocks, minerals, and mining. This workshop will be our 34th Annual in Northern Nevada.

The workshop is provided FREE to teachers, everything is provided by the Nevada Mining Association members and Nevada Division of Minerals.

The goal of the workshop is to educate K-12 Nevada teachers about earth sciences, the importance of mined materials and the role that mining plays in our lives.

We are excited to unveil a new workshop format for this Workshop. This new format will provide two mornings of classroom sessions and two afternoons of mine tours.

Day 1: Teachers will select two classroom sessions for the morning to learn about rocks and minerals. In the afternoon we will go out and visit active mining operations.

Day 2: Teachers will select two classroom sessions for the morning. Come into the main hall for some group presentations followed by prize drawings for a microscope and a real gold splatter! We will then depart in the afternoon to tour the mine you missed on the first day.

All food, beverages, snacks, safety equipment and travel arrangements for the tours are provided by us! So, come join us and see how much mineral education rocks!” (from NvMA website)
