400 items containing an unknown number of pages of mostly reports and maps. Years ago, this collection was part of the Mining District Files. It was separated out to create a collection of items that cover areas, while the Mining District Files in general were to be for points such as individual mines, claims, deposits, and the like. The media is mainly paper, linen, vellum, and mylar. The collection is divided up into the State of Nevada, 1' by 1' quadrangles, and counties. This collection will eventually be reintegrated into the Mining District Files.
Nevada Geology File
The collection is indexed by typed and handwritten notes in a binder. It will eventually be reintegrated back into the Mining District Files, and its indexing then will be part of that collection's electronic database. Though the collection is adequately stored for present usage, the files are paper and are slowly degrading with use. When it becomes part of the Mining District Files again, the items will be scanned as TIFs and converted to PDFs for the NBMG website. The originals will be sent to the the University of Nevada, Reno, Special Collections for proper preservation and storage in a climate controlled environment with a proper fire suppression system. The staff level noted in question 20 is for all of the NBMG collections.
