Location: Nevada
Operator: EP Minerals, LLC
Royalty: Advanced Payments

EaglePicher is a diatomaceous earth operation in Pershing County, Nevada about 23 miles northwest of Lovelock. The royalty is based on a fixed payment per ton which fluctuates based on the average sales price from the prior year’s sales. The royalty covers approximately 15 km2 of checkerboard lands. The intervening lands are public and EaglePicher holds unpatented placer claims on those lands as needed for mining. The mine has been in continuous operation since the 1950s with approximately 65% of production coming from Franco-Nevada land.
