That's the sound of 400-ton trucks and 1 million-pound shovels rolling into the Las Vegas Convention Center for the MineExpo. About 50,000 attendees visit the Expo kicking 15-foot tires and making deals for mining construction equipment. This get together comes amid the highest gold prices in recent times.

This ebook explores what that means for Nevada—and explains for the layman the enire process of gold production from the mine to the jewelry store, as well as its impact on communities.
