Mining Law

We have handled diverse mining matters all over Northern Nevada.

Robertson, Johnson, Miller & Williamson has a strong history of successful results over 25 years serving the vibrant mining industry of Northern Nevada. The firm has handled diverse mining matters all over Northern Nevada, including royalties involving the original founders of the Cortez Gold Mine, which is both the oldest and largest gold mine in Nevada, and Albemarle’s Silver Peak lithium mine, which supplies lithium for the Tesla and Panasonic Gigafactory in Nevada.

The firm brings legal strength to mining companies through a broad range of mining representation.

Handling the traditional areas of mining claims, mineral leases, royalties and permitting is the mainstay of our mining practice group. Unlike other law firms, however, RJMW also brings to the table substantial expertise in water rights, water acquisition and water permitting – which are critical for virtually any mining company in arid Nevada.

Additionally, the firm is well-known for its success in the purchase and sale of mining claims and companies. Handling such complex transactions requires the firm’s bedrock of knowledge in a variety of areas, along with the skills and experience necessary to bring together experts from multiple disciplines.

Finally, RJMW is the “gold standard” in Nevada when it comes to mining litigation.

Unfortunately, in today’s world, mining companies are often the target of lawsuits over innumerable issues. And, in other cases, mining companies must protect their rights by filing their own lawsuits. Whether the litigation relates to mining claims, environmental, water law, royalties, shareholder suits, permitting or any other mining-related issues, RJMW stands ready to provide unsurpassed mining litigation skills which have benefited a multitude of our clients for over two decades. Indeed, RJMW has obtained national recognition for its mining litigation practice, including a 2017 federal court jury verdict in favor of our mining clients in excess of $100 Million.
