IndyMatters Episode 69: State Geologist Jim Faulds talks geothermal and the chaotic origin story of minerals in Nevada
September 26, 2018

Reporter Daniel Rothberg sat down with Jim Faulds, director of the Bureau of Mines and Geology. The bureau, which serves as the state's geological survey, develops maps that assess everything from earthquake risk to geothermal potential. They talk about the state's dynamic geology,  why Nevada came to be targeted for mineral exploration and how much more there is to learn about the processes that continue to shape the Basin and Range.
