- Mining: The most valuable mined product in the state is gold. Nevada produces
about 3/4 of the gold produced in the United States. Nevada leads in the production of silver too.
The most important other mined products are diatomite and barite. Some clays, copper, gypsum, limestone,
lithium, carbonate, magnesite, oil, salt and sand and gravel are also produced in the state.
- Agriculture: Cattle and sheep ranching is the primary agricultural activity in
Nevada. Most Nevada cattle are sold to farmers in California, Idaho, Nevada and the Midwestern states.
Sheep, hogs and lambs are sold to meat packers. Wool is sold to textile mills. Nevada supports some
irrigated farms. Hay, to feed livestock, is the state's biggest crop. Other crops are alfalfa seed,
barley, garlic, mint, onions, potatoes and wheat.

- Manufacturing: The most important manufactured products in Nevada are printed
products (printing and publishing companies), food products (meat-packing, pet food, processed foods,
coffee), concrete and machinery (electronic, computer equipment, appliances, neon signs, electrical
machinery). Nevada also produces some chemicals, plastics and construction equipment.
- Services: Nevada's service industries, concentrated in the Las Vegas and Reno
metropolitan areas, are very, very important to Nevada's economy. Tourism is the prime reason for this.
Nevada's community, business and personal service industry accounts for about 1/3 of the state's total
gross product. This is a higher percentage than in any other state. Gambling, amusement and recreational
services (dude ranches, fishing resorts, hunting lodges) are the most important sectors. Other activities
include the operation of private schools, hospitals, advertising and data processing firms, cleaning
establishments, hotels and repair shops. The second-ranking service industry is finance, insurance and
real estate. Nevada grew faster than any other state in the 1990s. Wholesale (automobiles, food products,
minerals) and retail (stores, restaurants) trade rank third.
