Great Basin Resource Watch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1994 by a coalition of environmental, Native American and scientific community representatives. We are a regional environmental justice organization dedicated to protecting the health and well being of the land, air, water, wildlife, and human communities of the Great Basin from the adverse effects of resource extraction and use.
GBRW’s headquarters are in Reno, Nevada. We inform communities about mining impacts through reports and educational materials. We review mine proposals, permits and expansions in Nevada and California, and we recommend policy solutions to reduce toxic emissions, protect our water resources and preserve human and wildlife habitat.
