The federal government completed its transfer of 10,000 acres of public land to the city of Yerington on Thursday. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.
The Bureau of Land Management issued the patent to Yerington for the land, which will be used for industrial, recreational and infrastructure projects.
More than half the land will be given to Nevada Copper for expansion of its Pumpkin Hollow mine.
The land transfer was approved last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act passed by Congress.
