Which state has the most active gold mines?



  1. 0 Votes

    Believe it or not, Nevada is the largest producer of gold in the US. Nevada takes advantage of open pit mining which uses a quarry sort of system as opposed to multiple smaller mines. In 2007, Nevada produced about 80% of the gold mined in the United States. A number of large mining companies are headquartered in Nevada and operate massive mining operations there. 

    Nearly every state in the US has gold mining facilities of some sort.
