NEVADA COPPER VISITS OUR ROTARY CLUB
Tim Dyer, Vice President of External and Government Relations, and David Swisher, Senior Vice President of Operations for Nevada Copper were kind enough to come in and speak with us.  They went over current operations as well as where they see further growth at their Yerington operation.  The growth in operations will result in new jobs for the Yerington area in general and will be a boon to our local businesses.
Thank you for your time!
