On March 6, 2015 six members of the Nevada Mining Association and two directors from the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development came to visit Nevada Copper, the Pumpkin Hollow Mine Project for an overview presentation and a mine tour. The occasion gave us a chance to highlight the opportunities for economic development with both mines and other commercial and industrial development envisioned at Pumpkin Hollow.
The Nevada Mining Association has existed for more than 100 years-first established in 1912 as the Nevada Mine Operators Association and changed to the Nevada Mining Association in 1952. From debating policy matters in the state legislature and local governments to uniting the voice of the industry in public relations and leading the industry’s efforts in the community, the work of the Nevada Mining Association can be seen in all corners of the state and in all levels of the communities. http://www.nevadamining.org/
The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) was created during the 2011 Session of the Nevada Legislature through a collaboration of the Nevada Governor’s Office and the Leadership of the Nevada State Senate and State Assembly.
GOED promotes a robust, diversified and prosperous economy in Nevada, stimulating business expansion and retention, encouraging entrepreneurial enterprise, attracting new business and facilitating community development. http://diversifynevada.com/
