Description: Immediately after the Town of Tonopah’s Saturday morning Main Street parade. Join professionals and amateurs at the Tonopah Historic Mining Park (directly behind the Mizpah Hotel), at high noon as they compete for big dollar prizes!  Both women and men are invited to participate in a wide variety of events.  Large cash prizes are the incentive and the reward is being able to brag that you are the Nevada State champion!  The top Single Jack contestant will earn $100 per inch drilled! Prize money is donated by supportive companies and individuals. Participant’s $25.00 entry fees are added in to the purse and used to boost the prize monies even more. The more money donated, the bigger the purse.   While there, be sure to tour the Tonopah Historic Mining Park, pan for gold, observe or participate in the “Blacksmith as an Art Classes”, watch the 44th annual Nevada State Mining Championships, a precursor to the National Mining Championship Competition held in Carson City immediately following the Nevada Day Parade on October 31.  The mining competitions continue at 10 a.m. on Sunday. As always, these events are FREE OF CHARGE to observers.  Blacksmithing classes are $60.00 for the weekend. Please check the Nevada 150 Event Calendar for additional information about all the activities that make up Jim Butler Days.  This is a wonderful weekend for the whole family and a unique experience you will never forget!
