Virginia City, home to the largest strike in the world, hosts students from across the globe this March 20 – 23, 2019 as mining returns to the Comstock with the 41st annual International Collegiate Mining Competition. With an estimated 200 participants, this year’s event is hosted by the University of Nevada, Reno’s Mining Team, Mackay Muckers.

The collegiate mining competition began in 1978 in honor and remembrance of the fallen miners from the Sunshine Mine fire in 1972. The competition consists of traditional mining methods. There are seven events that make up the competition: Single Jack Hand Steel, Jackleg Drilling, Hand Mucking, Gold Panning, Track Stand, Swede Saw and Survey.
