46. Minerals
 
    1. Valuation/Minerals: "In a condemnation action the existence of mineral deposits in or on land is an element to be considered in determining the land's value. Nevertheless, where the property is not taken for the purpose of obtaining the minerals or as an ongoing business it is improper to appraise the mineral deposits separately and add the mineral value to the value of the land." Testimony should be restricted to the effect the presence of the minerals would have on market value.  State, Dep't of Transp. v. Las Vegas Bldg., 104 Nev. 479, 482, 761 P.2d 843 (1988) (#75)
