Mizpah Mine, Tonopah, Nye County, NV

description

Summary

Significance: The Tonopah Mining boom was the first to revive the mining industry in Nevada after two decades of depression. Mining activity was long sustained at Tonopah largely due to the amazing production record of the Tonopah Mining Company, which owned the most productive mine in Tonopah mining history the Mizpah. The Mizpah shaft tapped the richest workings of the mine and continued to produce great quantities of ore long after most others at Tonopah had ceased production.
