Major Restoration Projects

The Tonopah Historic Mining Park Foundation does not have the funding to accomplish these vast restorations alone.  As time passes, foundations continue to crumble, superstructures need wood replacement, and steel needs repair.  Your donation will help to ensure the preservation of these icons of mining history, not only for today, but for the future as well.

The Silver Top

The Silver Top

In operation from 1902 to 1948, the Silver Top head frame is one of the three complete hoisting works on Park property. The failure of the front foundations have caused the front feet to drop and pull away from the rear feet.  Several structural trusses have pulled loose and fallen.

The Desert Queen

The Desert Queen

The Desert Queen head frame was used between 1901 to 1929. One of the major diagonal frame members is completely rotted off at the footing.  Several structural trusses have pulled loose and fallen.
