Mining plays a major role in the economy of Nevada, particularly in the Las Vegas and Reno metropolitan areas. In 2004, Nevada produced 8.7% of the gold mined in the world with 6,800,000 ounces adding up to $2.84 billion worth. Though gold is by far in first, silver is also highly produced in the state with $69 million worth produced in 2004.
Nevada is commonly known as the “Silver State” because of its silver production, even though it produces more gold than silver. Aside from these shiny minerals, Nevada also mines construction aggregates, copper, gypsum, diatomite, and lithium. With so many valuable minerals coming out a Nevada, it’s easy to see why mining is so important to the economy. The cost of mining in Nevada is very high with such rich deposits.
The more rural parts of Nevada produce large amounts of agricultural outputs such as cattle, hay, alfalfa, dairy products, onions, and potatoes. More than 90% of the cropland acres, which totals to 484,000 acres, is used to grow hay—mostly alfalfa.
With such a major tourist industry in Las Vegas, Nevada attracts visitors from around the world. Aside from Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Laughlin draw in their own tourists. With gaming and gambling being so prevalent in these areas, some casinos earn up to $1.6 billion in a year.
