[SLIDESHOW] Inside Newmont Mining's Carlin Trend Mine

Newmont Mining Corporation is one of the largest mining companies in the world. For over 50 years the company has been working in Nevada along a 100-mile stretch of highway in the northern section of the state known as the Carlin Trend Operations.

Opened in 1985, the company’s Gold Quarry section is currently Newmont’s largest open pit on the Carlin Trend and considered the most prolific goldfield in the Western hemisphere. 

With 11 open-pit and eight underground mines and 13 processing facilities in Nevada, Newmont Mining’s Nevada properties are an integrated unit that boost the widest variety of processing methods of any gold mining complex in the world. 

Take a look at some of the largest open-pit gold mine complexes in the United States.
