The Oasis casino and Resort in Mesquite will be demolished, one building at a time, starting Saturday.
Lunas Inc of Las Vegas will complete the demolition, which involves leveling several buildings over the course of three months.
Six hotel buildings, a spa building, casino and a go-kart track all must go. Safety fencing will be placed around the site during the work.
The Oasis was opened as the Peppermill in the 1970s. The property is owned by CasaBlanca Resorts LLC, part of Mesquite Gaming.
Mesquite Gaming also owns and operates the CasaBlanca Resort Casino and the Virgin River Hotel and Casino, also in Mesquite.
Because of weak business conditions, operations were reduced at the Oasis beginning in December 2008 and the property was eventually closed.
