Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History and the Park City Museum would like to invite you to a Zoom lecture about Saving Our Mining Structures given by JR Richards and Clark Martinez on Friday, December 4th from 5-6 p.m. Please register for the lecture at https://parkcityhistory.org/event/saving-the-mining-structures-lecture-given-by-friends-of-ski-mountain-mining-history/ and a link will be sent to you the week of the talk.
Jonathan Richards (JR) of Calder Richards Engineering has been our structural engineer of choice for many years as we have planned and executed mine stabilization projects. He inspects the structures, measures them and draws plans for effective construction projects to ensure their long term stability. He is joined by Clark Martinez, 4th generation Park City Miner who owns Xcavation Company, widely known for their expertise in closing, stabilizing and reclaiming mine sites in Utah and throughout the West. Since most of Clark’s reclamation work is done in the fall, winter and spring, he is available to help us here in Park City in the short snow-free months of the summer. Clark and JR work hand-in-glove to share their expertise and they collaborate closely to produce miracles of restoration and stabilization of our old mining era structures. Our stabilization successes to date have been the King Con Counterweight, Jupiter Ore Bin, Little Bell Ore Bin, California Comstock Mill and Thaynes Conveyor. Next summer they will be working on the King Con Ore Bin. JR and Clark will discuss their methods and challenges they faced in saving these mining structures.
