The quadrennial MineExpo was held in Las Vegas last week with 55,000 attendees. The Las Vegas Convention Center is one of the few in the nation that can accommodate all the giant mining trucks and equipment [right, credit Jon Price]. Plus Nevada and adjacent Arizona are the two biggest mining (non-fuel minerals) states in the nation.
The Association of American State Geologists was given a complimentary exhibit booth in the lobby [right, credit Jon Price] to showcase the work done by state geological surveys in mining and mineral resources. AZGS helped staff that booth and passed out our new brochure on Arizona and AZGS resources.
