Elko lies along the Humboldt River in northeastern Nevada and is the largest city for over 130 miles in all directions. Despite its population of almost 20,000, the remoteness of the community is said to cultivate a strong sense of independence among its members. Elko's industry is based heavily on gold mining, and the city is considered the capital of Nevada's gold belt. Nevada produces more gold annually than all but four countries, and most of that gold is mined near Elko. Read more on ArcGIS Story Maps.
