NRS 396.650
Limitations on number of samples and quantitative analyses.


Gold and silver samples requiring assays and exact quantitative determinations are limited to two in any 30-day period; and of the so-called strategic or war minerals, such as antimony, arsenic, beryllium, manganese, magnesium, tungsten, molybdenum, quicksilver, zinc, lead, copper, tin, chromium, cadmium, or other strategic minerals for the assaying of which the average assay office is not equipped, there shall be run up to five assays or quantitative determinations for any single person or associated group of persons. Samples sent for ordinary rock and mineral determinations are limited to 10 in any 30-day period.


In order to save the State unnecessary expense, if preliminary examinations by microscope and qualitative tests indicate material of no economic value, exact quantitative analyses are not to be run on such samples, and reports on such material will indicate why such material has no commercial value.
