VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The history of the Comstock is getting a facelift.

Gold Hill's Yellow Jacket Mine is restored after going unused since 1942. Comstock Mining Inc. donates 1 percent of yearly revenue towards restoring dozens of historic mines and mills throughout the Comstock. This renovation costs more than $100,000.

Experts hope this is the start of many projects designed to bring in new tourism south of Virginia City, and show off the founding history of Nevada. "We wouldn't have been a state in 1864 without the Comstock," said Ron James from the Comstock Foundation For History. "Mining is what this state is built on and these resources are some of the oldest reminisce that refer back to why Nevada is a state and why it is important."

Comstock Mining expects to donate a half-million dollars towards historic renovations this year.
