“I thank Jared for coming to Nevada at my request to tour the Anaconda Copper Mine site in Yerington,” Reid said. “It was important to discuss potential funding that would clean up and restore the site if it’s added to the National Priorities List.

I look forward to continuing to work with Jared and will make every effort to ensure full cleanup and restoration of the site.”
