Elko Nevada Facts & Information
Nevada is almost entirely within the Basin and Range Province, and therefore is broken up by many north-south mountain ranges. Most of these ranges have inland-draining (unconnected to the ocean by waterways) valleys between them, which belies the image portrayed by the term Great Basin.
Nevada is the largest gold-producing state in the nation. It is second in the world behind South Africa.
Nevada State Fossil - Ichthyosaur (Shonisaurus - a huge, whale-like marine reptile that lived during the time of the dinosaurs)
Locals use terms like The Sagebrush State, The Silver State, and The Battle Born State as nicknames for Nevada.
Nevada State Fish - Lahontan Cutthroat Trout
Nevada Major Industries - Tourism, mining (gold, silver), and hydro-electric power
Fact - Elko is the 15th largest county in United States, including Alaska Hawaii.
Elko History - The first Elko County Courthouse was built in 1869.
