Elko mining was gaining traction amongst would-be fortune seekers years before the town was even founded. In the late 1860s, mines cropped up everywhere across the region as miners sought out the gold and silver tucked away in the dusty Nevada hills. Miners from around the world flocked to places such as Elko, Cortez, Eureka and all along the Carlin Trend in hopes of striking it rich. Some did, others didn’t, but the draw remains as strong as ever today.
Since then, gold and silver mining has expanded to become a full-fledged industry, with names such as Nevada Gold and Kinross pulling millions of ounces of gold from local deposits and loading them onto some of the world’s largest haul trucks. The annual Elko Mining Expo serves as a living testament to the perennial allure of gold, silver and other minerals found in and around Elko.
