The Nevada Mining Tax Cap Amendment

The amendment, also known as Senate Joint Resolution 15, would remove the archaic 5 percent constitutional cap on the mining tax—in other words, it would permit the state to treat mining like any other business. Mining officials are howling, especially with gold prices down, but mining corporations claimed they couldn’t afford to pay more even when gold prices were sky high. In any case, if ore can be profitably removed, they’ll be here, whatever the taxes.
