The Mines and Mining Collection is comprised of business and legal material that documents the history of mining in southern and central Nevada. An artificial collection, it is not focused on one mining company in particular, but instead includes documentation on various mines and mining companies located in Lincoln, Clark, and Nye County. Types of documentation include prospectuses, brochures, stock certificates, correspondence, invoices, employee lists, maps, newspaper clippings, purchasing records and mill foreman reports. The collection can provide information on the history of various Nevada mines including location, operation dates, minerals being mined, and production amounts. The collection is open and continues to receive additions via donation and purchase.
