Nevada is officially known as the “Silver State” because of the metal’s importance both economically and historically. There were several rich silver strikes throughout the state in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Nevada is also the fourth largest gold producer in the world.
In 2004, 6.8 million ounces of gold were mined here, along with 10.3 million ounces of silver. More than two-thirds of Nevada’s residents live in Clark County, where Las Vegas is located; Las Vegas casinos attract millions of tourists each year, bringing in more than $12 billion in gaming revenue.
