Administrative History

New Park Mining Company (1932-1975) was a mining company centered around the Park City area of Utah.

Mayflower Mines Corporation, started in 1929, became New Park Mining Company in 1932. W. H. H. Crammer became president and general manager. This company came to incorporate many of the mines in the area. It closed in 1975 due to high shipping costs from Utah to mills and smelters and the top companies in Utah closed.
