The Mineral Park Mine,(Kingman Turquoise Mine,) is located in the Acerbate Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, Arizona. It has been commercially mined since the late 1880's to the early 1900's by the Aztec Turquoise Co, The Los Angeles Gem Co, Arizona Turquoise Co, Southwest Turquoise Co and Mineral Park Turquoise Co and now the Colbaugh Processing Inc. Chuck Colbaugh represented Arizona in a gemstone exhibition competition held by the Smithsonian Institution for the State of Arizona with a spectacular Kingman Turquoise cabochon. Chuck and his wife, Edith also donated thirty Turquoise carvings made from Kingman Turquoise to the Mojave Museum of History and Art in Kingman in the early 1970s, they are still on display today. Chuck Colbaugh had the Turquoise Mining contract for Ithaca Peak and Turquoise Mountain since the early 1960's and the concession is still in the family today run by Marty and son Josh Colbaugh. Today Kingman Turquoise is found in American Turquoise Jewelry as well as Turquoise Jewelry from around the world.
