The pile of pipe beside the building is fan pipe which was used to send air down the mine and through the workings for ventilation. The air was supplied by large fans on the surface. The pile of wire on the hill behind the building is banding from bundles of timber that was shipped in on the railroad. The timbers were unloaded from the railroad cars and brought down to the framing building where it was cut to the dimensions needed for mine timbering and other uses. The building had saws inside and out. The saws were belt driven by electric motors and the pulleys can still be seen in the rafters. The boxes contain core samples from core drilling done to explore the eastern portion of the Tonopah District during the 1980's. Nothing of commercial value was found. Drills and other equipment from the grounds of the Tonopah Historic Mining Park are displayed inside.
