Nevada Metallurgical Inc

Nevada Metallurgical Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Itronics, Inc. which opened its doors in 1981.  At its core, Itronics is a company that utilizes science and engineering to create and commercialize recycling, mineral, and nutrient technologies. With research facilities in Reno, Nevada, Itronics operates as a holding company for two wholly owned subsidiaries, Itronics Metallurgical, Inc. (formerly Nevada Metallurgical, Inc.) and Whitney & Whitney, Inc.

Itronics Metallurgical, Inc. is the only company in the world with the technology to recycle used photo-chemicals completely. This is accomplished by extracting the silver and converting the demetallized liquids into top-rated environmentally sound fertilizer products. It has developed breakthrough zero waste refining technology to reclaim precious metals from discarded printed circuit boards, including gold, silver, palladium, copper, and tin. The silver solution created from liquid photographic waste or mine tailings, is also used to extract metals from circuit boards during furnace refining. The reclaimed metals then become ingredients in the company’s bullion.

From 1984 through 1988, Nevada Metallurgical produced 1 Oz rounds. The company named this series "Silver Nevada Miner". The mintage for each year was 1,000 to 2,000 rounds per minting run. Some years had more than one minting run. Beginning in 2001, the company moved to producing 5 Oz bars. Bars exist for all years from 2001 to 2009. All bullion products were minted with .999 Fine Silver reclaimed from e-waste, photo-chemicals, and mine tailings. The finishes for the products were BU. Along with the name of the mint, Nevada Metallurgical's mint mark is "NMI" and later on "IMI". Minting operations appear to have ceased around 2010.
