The first summary of all the State’s mineral resources to be published was “Mining Districts and Mineral Resources of Nevada” by Francis Church Lincoln in 1923. This was prepared by him while Director of the Mackay School of Mines of the University of Nevada and before the Nevada State Bureau of Mines came into existence in 1929. The Bureau has since distributed this authoritative 300 page book to a very appreciative public. Naturally, the treatment of each mining district was restricted to a short statement, but accompanied by an excellent bibliography.
