A very high proportion of the State of Nevada is federal public land. As a result, its score more or less matches that given to the Federal rating. Within the environmental field, Nevada has adopted some helpful safe harbours that help to ensure that permitting requirements are not engaged as a result of tree blazing, soil sampling or minor trench digging; it demonstrates an understanding of the industry and a level of pragmatism befitting a state well known for its support of the mining industry.

Measures the risk that an investor will lose the economic benefits of a mineral discovery based only on the key laws, regulations and policies in the jurisdiction – with a rating of 100 equating to zero risk.  

Corruption Potential Index

Measures a jurisdictions’ corruption potential, providing a mining specific rating based on: (1) the importance of various government decisions in the administration of mineral projects; (2) the degree of discretion associated with those decisions; (3) the number of state actors involved in decision making.

Corruption Risk Index

Measures the likelihood of government actors using discretionary powers for improper purposes, providing a mining specific corruption risk rating by mathematically screening the CPI through the lens of the Economists’ Democracy Index.
