Nevada gold: The Real Golden State #infographic

Thanks to the world-famous 19th-century silver discoveries that unveiled the valuable metal potential of Nevada, the state today is known by many as "the Silver State."

However, nicknaming can need to be revised. Nevada has become a prolific gold producer in the last few decades, accounting for 84 per cent of total U.S. gold production annually.

Today's Corvus Gold infographic illustrates why Nevada might have a better case for deserving California's "Golden State" nickname: we look at the state's gold production, exploration potential, and even its rich history.

The future for Nevada's gold mining could lie in the Walker Lane Trend. This pattern is host to some of the newest gold finds, and has drawn the attention of major mining companies seeking to pursue exploration, and eventually development.

Walker Lane stands out for its outstanding high-grade, rising reserves and tremendous potential for exploration. It also played an integral role in the state's history beginning with the Comstock Lode discovery of 1859, and it appears likely to continue to do so in the future.
