|Web Coordinator’s Note. Unfortunately, no photographs have been located from the actual 2000 conference or the tours and field trips. With the help of Bill Wahl, Don Southwick, and others, we have attempted to reconstruct photo galleries of the sites visited during the conference.|
The Tonopah Historic Mining Park the venue for the Welcoming Reception, preserves a collection of mine buildings and other features that were associated with several important mines at the site. A great deal of work has gone into this grass-roots effort since the MHA visit in 2000. In 2004 the Burro Tunnel Underground Adventure was opened to allow visitors to experience underground mining. The tunnel leads to a 500 foot vertical open stope where the gold vein was removed. A well documented Walking Tour allows visitors to cover the Park’s large area. Some of the important stops along the tour route are shown in the photos below.
The Mizpah Mine (left) was one of several that were served by the Tonopah and Goldfield Railroad. The T&G Trestle (center) is the last surviving structure of the railroad.
