Mine Safety and Training Section

This picture was taken at Round Mountain in 1992. Perhaps that explains why it is one of the richest mines in Nevada.

The Mine Safety and Training Section (MSATS) was created by Legislative Act in 1909 to establish a safe work place for Nevada Miners.

The mission of MSATS pursuant to Chapter 512 of the Nevada Revised Statutes is to establish and determine mine operator compliance with state and federal regulations and assist mine operators in meeting compliance through development of training programs and by providing consultation and technical assistance.
