It's taken 40 years since the official shutdown of the former Anaconda Copper Mine near Yerington, Nev., but there will finally be shovels in the ground later this year.
Another tribe in Northern Nevada wants Nevada’s new governor to reverse a deal made under the previous administration to clean-up the Anaconda Copper Mine near Yerington.
Nevada’s Anaconda Copper Mine has been removed from an updated list of national Superfund cleanup sites.
An agreement was reached between Governor Brian Sandoval and the EPA that puts the state in control of an expedited cleanup.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — State environmental regulators are banking on a pledge from petroleum giant BP to expedite cleanup of an abandoned Nevada mine without the teeth of the U.S.
