Mining isn’t new to Nevada. In fact, it might be the oldest profession in the state. Still hunting today prospectors search the desert in hopes of finding the next big strike. Get a different view of Nevada when watching The Prospector's Eye. Nevada, meaning "snow covered" in Spanish, extends out over thousands of square miles of rugged basin and range country. Most of its population lives in the Las Vegas area to the south, and the Reno area to the north, leaving the rest of the land to the jackrabbits, wild horses and relatively few human residents and visitors. To get a sense of this vast land, documentarians spent several days tagging along with those who perhaps know it best, the prospectors, to see it through their eyes.The video explores those rough and rugged entrepreneurs who still possess the pioneer spirit and comb the vast lands of the Nevada desert looking for the treasures that might lie beneath.We tag along after three independent prospectors who have separate claims scattered around Nevada, to appreciate how they see the land. Bob Steele has prospected for the past half-century, Debbie Bustos is a former schoolbus driver with 20 years of prospecting under her belt, and John Livermore has probably tramped over more Nevada ground than anyone around. Shot on location in Ely, Tonopah, Lovelock, Goldfield, Rhyolite, with aerial footage of Carlin Trend. Produced with additional support from Public Resource Associates.
