Quake Rattles Rural Nevada

(Las Vegas, NV) — Sheriff’s officials in northern Nevada are reporting no damage or injuries after a 3.9 magnitude earthquake overnight near a small gold mining town northeast of Winnemucca.

Getchell is in a remote area about 210 miles east of Reno, and home to a Barrick Gold Corp. mine.

A Barrick company spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a message.

Humboldt County sheriff’s officials say they received no calls about the quake.
