Nevada Gold Mines Tour - Twin Creek Mines 

Wednesday, October 19*

$300 USD

Join us for an exciting field trip to Twin Creeks, part of Nevada Gold Mines complex with three of the world’s top 10 Tier One gold assets. Nevada Gold Mines is operated by Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD)(TSX:ABX) and is a joint venture between Barrick (61.5%) and Newmont (38.5%) that combined their significant assets across Nevada in 2019 to create the single largest gold-producing complex in the world.

Under the joint venture, Barrick’s Turquoise Ridge Mine and Newmont’s Twin Creeks Complex were combined as a single operation, now known as Turquoise Ridge. The combined mining operation is comprised of the Turquoise Ridge Underground, Vista Underground, and Turquoise Ridge Surface (the Mega and Vista open pits).

Participants will travel from Sparks to the Twin Creeks Mine, Golconda, NV 89414, United States. Approximately 205 miles North of Sparks, Nevada.
