Round Mountain recently donated $40,000 to the Tonopah Historic Mining Park Foundation to help preserve and celebrate the rich mining history in the area.
The non-profit Foundation is tasked with celebrating the more than 100-year mining history in the area by preserving over 100 acres of land, including mining equipment and buildings, through restoration, historic exhibits, video presentations and public tours.
As part of the donation, the Round Mountain will work with the Foundation to create an exhibit about Round Mountain’s operations. The partnership also includes a ‘Then to Now’ tour experience, where visitors will tour the Tonopah Historic Mining Park, then travel to Round Mountain for a tour of the operations, followed by a tour of the Sunnyside Historical Society Museum in Round Mountain. This opportunity leverages the more than 6,000 annual visitors to the mining park, and encourages them to spend more time and support tourism in the local area.
“Round Mountain is excited about our new partnership with the Tonopah Historic Mining Park Foundation to support the restoration and preservation of our region’s rich mining history and heritage,” said Neil Jensen, Vice President and General Manager, Round Mountain. “The Foundation delivers public education initiatives we are proud to support and Round Mountain is looking forward to welcoming interested members of the public for a guided tour of our operations.”
Kinross and the Tonopah Historic Mining Park Foundation look forward to a long-lasting partnership to preserve Nevada’s mining history, heritage and the life surrounding it at the Tonopah Historic Mining Park.
