Mining Trash // Tonopah, Nevada 3D Model
Tonopah is an old mining town in western Nevada in the desert north of Death Valley. Although off the beaten path for many typical vacations, it boasts a lot of history, and the arid landscape is colorful with ancient volcanic activity.
When the town experienced its mining boom in the early 1900s, silver mining camps were set up all around the hills near town. These mining camps were often rough and transitory places - and it was common for miners to designate an area close to camp to throw their trash.
At first glance from Google Maps, this area looked like it had dark shrubs or rocks from above - there were patchy areas of brownish that from afar, look like they might be natural. Upon closer inspection however, we can see with drone mapping that in fact these brown patches are actually piles of rusted metal and trash left by miners.
We’ve annotated some interesting areas in the model - but feel free to explore and get a sense for the scale of an Old West dumping ground for mining.
