Newmont Mining’s Midas Mine in Elko County has reopened following improvement work after a ground failure collapse caused its closure in March.

The underground gold mine was shut on 10 March after ground failure blocked the main access route into the mine.

It has been allowed to reopen by federal regulators and is expected to reach normal production levels in the coming days.
