BLM Conducting Triple B Complex Wild Horse Gather
The BLM plans to gather 1,500 wild horses and remove approximately 1,000 horses. The BLM will release approximately 250 mares that will have been treated with the fertility control vaccine PZP-22 to slow the population growth rate of the animals remaining on public lands. PZP-22 is a temporary fertility-control vaccine that can prevent pregnancy in wild horses for one to two years. In addition, approximately 250 gathered stallions will be selected and returned back to the range.
The Triple B Complex is located in both the BLM Ely and Elko Districts and consists of the Triple B HMA (Ely), Maverick Medicine HMA (Elko), Antelope Valley HMA west of Hwy 93 (Elko), and Cherry Springs Wild Horse Territory (Elko). The gather could also expand to areas outside of those HMAs where wild horses have moved in search of food and water and are creating a public safety hazard by traveling regularly across Jiggs Road.
All removed horses will be transported to the Palomino Valley Wild Horses and Burro Adoption Center in Reno, Nevada, where they will be checked by a veterinarian and readied for the BLM’s wild horse and burro adoption program. For information on how to adopt a wild horse, visit blm.gov/whb.
The BLM said its priority is to conduct safe, efficient, and successful wild horse gather operations while ensuring humane care and treatment of all animals gathered. The BLM and its contractors will use the best available science and handling practices for wild horses while meeting our overall gather goals and objectives in accordance with current BLM policy, standard operating procedures, and contract requirements.
Members of the public are welcome to view the daily gather operations, provided that doing so does not jeopardize the safety of the animals, staff and observers, or disrupt gather operations. The BLM will escort the public to gather observation sites located on public lands.

The Ely Renaissance Society was founded in 1999 by a group of individuals with the vision of an attractive downtown area which would be representative of the art and culture belonging to the diverse group of people who had built and strengthened the small community through the years.
As occurs in many mining towns, cycles of “boom or bust” had left the community of Ely Nevada dreaming for a more stable economy, something more than mining alone.
In its heyday Ely had been a bustling town with numerous small family owned businesses catering to the needs of the settling families to ranch, to work the mine and build the railroad. People came from everywhere, and the small town of Ely was a true example of a diverse population.
The stories, characters, and the influences of the many ethnic groups would not be lost. And so, a movement sprang forth to not only preserve and celebrate the richness of the community, but also to offer the story up to visitors.
The next venture of the Ely Renaissance Society was to purchase a piece of property with several houses that have been restored to showcase the ethnic cultures of the diverse people who settled here. These small houses have been made into unique museums depicting the turn of the century of Ely. A miner’s cabin, barn and general store complete the Village.
Re-enactments and living history presentations are held at the “Ely Renaissance Village” as well as many other yearly activities from Farmer’s Market to the Art/Wine Walk which celebrates local Nevada artists and their work.
The Village is open from the third weekend in May to the third weekend in September on Friday and Saturdays 10 am to 4pm
Where the World Met and Become One, is just one of the historical books that can be purchased at the Ely Renaissance Village General Store. The book tells the stories of 24 local ladies who lived and worked here in the late 1880’s through the early 1900’s. These women led the transformation of Ely from a mining camp to the culturally diverse community it is today.
Stories include Eastern Nevada pioneers from seven Asian and European cultures represented in the Ely Renaissance Village. Written by Patricia White, Ph.D. and complied by Lorraine Clark, the book is a collection of family biographies and photos that tell the story of the early days in Ely.
Ely Renaissance Society, PO Box 150028, Ely NV 89315 Books are $35 each or $40 if mailed.
