Northern Nevada SME Section

The SME Northern Nevada Section engages local members of the mineral extraction community with monthly dinner meetings and technical presentations during the academic year. Our primary mission as a branch of SME is to support post-secondary education related to mineral extraction. We accomplish this by offering free admission to dinner meetings for students in the Mackay School of Earth Science and Engineering of the University of Nevada, Reno, and by distributing scholarships annually to qualified applicants from UNR's Mackay School.
