The McCaw School of Mines


The "Jewel of the Desert" simulated mine at McCaw Elementary School is where kids come to learn about mining, the history of mining and the importance of mining in Nevada.

It's a fun, hands on field trip experience open to fourth grade student throughout the valley and it is completely free to public school students. The McCaw School of Mines Foundation provides the funding to maintain and equip the facility and provide bus transportation to and from the tours. Volunteers conduct the tours along with the "Mighty Miners," students from McCaw Elementary who are trained to help.

School tour dates are available from October through May.  The tours run from 10 a.m. to noon. Private tours are available for small groups throughout the year. Call the office at 799-3546 for details.
