Virginia City, Nevada

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The development of the Southwestern United States was crucially driven by resource exraction, and the area continues to be home to some of the world's largest mining operations.  Nevada was first put on the figurative map with the discovery of the Comstock Silver Lode in 1859, which had an effect comparable to the discovery of gold in neighboring California in 1848.  In this video, contributor TampaRandy gives us a drone's eye view of Virginia City, the epicenter of the great silver strike.
