Passage of the Northern Nevada Bill Will Have a Huge Economic Impact on Lyon County

where-we-could-be

The Northern Nevada Economic Development and Conservation Act is on the brink of being passed. We have two more hurdles and not a lot of time.  The bill was passed unanimously by the House on September 15, 2014. We are now waiting for Senate approval and the President’s signature. We have less than 20 days to accomplish those approvals.

If and when the bill passes, the economic impact will be felt. Especially in our rural Nevada communities where unemployment is high and the average salaries are low.

Passage of the bill will essentially help 7 of our northern Nevada communities acquire land by purchase from the Federal Government.

The city of Yerington, will purchase roughly 10,000 acres with the help of Nevada Copper. Once purchased, Nevada Copper plans to expand operations and implement Phase 2 of the mine plan.

Phase 2 of the mine plan would add 500 – 700 construction jobs and would employ around 950 permanent employees.

The comparison is depicted in the image above. The current size versus the potential size of the Nevada Copper project can be understood by comparing the size of a golf ball versus the size of a basketball. For example:

The current project is worth $35 million.

If the bill passes, the project will be worth $1.3 billion.

The current project will employ 430 permanent jobs.

If the bill passes, the project will employ over 1000.

This is an economic bill!

Understand the Zero Cost of the Northern Nevada Bill – It’s a Jobs Bill!

Worth 1 Billion Cost Nothing

The Northern Nevada Economic Development and Conservation Act was passed unanimously by the U.S. House of Representatives on September 15, 2014. It now awaits Senate approval, and the President’s signature. The Senate returns on November 12 and has a very short time, perhaps only 20 days, to pass the bill in the final days of the 113th Congress.

When it is passed, roughly 10,000 acres of land will be conveyed at fair market value to the City of Yerington by the Federal Government. Nevada Copper, working with the City, has agreed to pay for all of the costs of the transfer.

This is a jobs bill!

The bill will jumpstart the Pumpkin Hollow copper project and bring over 1,400 direct, high-paying jobs to Lyon County from the mine itself. It will allow the City to annex the mine, allowing it receive a share of property and net proceeds of mine taxes. It will also provide additional lands for development of infrastructure, and other commercial, industrial and recreational developments.

Pumpkin Hollow will also stimulate the purchase of mining and construction services and supplies from hundreds of Nevada-based suppliers. Using a multiplier of 2.37 published by the Nevada Mining Association, over 3,300 direct and indirect jobs could be created locally and regionally.

To learn more about what the project will cost taxpayers, click and watch the video below. The answer is NOTHING.

Steven Horsford Goes the Extra Mile for Yerington

Steven Horsford Extra Mile Stories  Yerington   YouTube

One of the reasons Horsford is focused on transferring federal lands back to Nevada, is because he believes we as Nevadans, have the ability to use Nevada lands to create Nevada jobs.

The copper project he mentions in the commercial is Nevada Copper’s Pumpkin Hollow, in Yerington, NV.

Passage of the Northern Nevada Economic Development and Conservation Act will help jumpstart Pumpkin Hollow, bringing over 1000 high-paying jobs to Lyon County. It will also stimulate the economic flow of mining and construction vendors both locally and nationally.

Help us pass the bill by “liking” our Facebook page and asking your peers to join you in our initiative to get the bill passed!

Importance of Copper to Manufacturing and Us

Jumpstart

passbillscreatejobs:

Pass Bills. Create Jobs is a grassroots initiative to raise awareness and support for seven northern Nevada land actions stuck in Congress.

The bill was passed unanimously by the House on Sept. 15th, 2014. The bill is currently awaiting Senate approval. Once it is passed, it will jumpstart Nevada Copper’s Pumpkin Hollow Project, a 1 billion dollar copper mine near Yerington, Nevada that will benefit all of northern Nevada.

Below is a post from a fellow blogger that shows the importance of Copper in our world.

Originally posted on wryheat:

Copper is vital to our civilization. It is used in many things we may take for granted. Below is an infographic from the National Mining Association showing how copper is used and where it is mined in the United States (you can get the graphic here).

You can also get a new report “U.S. Mines to Market” which shows the importance of mining to the manufacturing segment of our economy.

Among other things, the report discusses:

In 2013, value added to gross domestic product (GDP) by major American industries that consume processed mineral materials was $2.4 billion, or 14 percent of total GDP.

As the U.S. manufacturing sector continues to grow, the importance of a secure, stable, reliable and sustainable raw material supply is increasing.

The U.S. permitting process for new mineral and metal mines makes it difficult for our nation to reduce dependence on foreign-sourced…

Why a popular Nevada lands deal got held up in Congress

sun

After three and a half years and about eight committee hearings, the bill finally passed the U.S. House of Representatives in September. The Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act would create about 73,500 acres of protected wilderness in exchange for allowing 23,000 acres of federal land for economic development, including a copper mine. The biggest Nevada lands package in 16 years now awaits a Senate vote……
