The materials document mines and mineral resources in Nevada; the Comstock Lode and other mines, and the mining industry and finance.
The Consolidated Virginia Mining Company on the Comstock Lode at Virginia City, Nevada, was organized in 1867, but the sinking of a shaft was delayed for two years.
In the 1930s, the company was reactivated to mine and mill the lower grade ore still remaining.
This collection contains correspondence, business papers, ledger books, maps and reports of the Consolidated Virginia Mining Company of Virginia City, Nevada, dating from 1876-1955.All of this and more can take place at the temporary city of 60,000 people known as Burning Man, the annual gathering that is rising once again in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.Dating back to 1986, this year's Burning Man starts on Sunday, August 30, and continues through Monday, September 7.It is also true that individuals, as well as whole species, eventually miss the boat and fail in this high-stakes game. Death applies to all, and the vast majority of species that ever existed in Earth’s history are now extinct.But the glory of natural selection is not death, but its participation in the effusive generativity of life.
