R.C. Chambers lecture given by Mark Danninger and Sandy Brumley

June 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Park City Museum hosts a lecture series at its Education and Collections Center on Sidewinder Drive.

Park City Museum and Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History will host a lecture called R.C. Chambers given by Mark Danninger and Sandy Brumley on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, from 5-6 p.m. held at the Park City Museum Education
and Collections Center located at 2079 Sidewinder Drive. More information can be found at www.parkcityhistory.org.

Robert Craig Chambers was a man of many connections.  Perhaps most prominently, he served as the agent of George Hearst in the acquisition of The Ontario Mine. He also used John Daly as an agent to acquire additional properties in the Park City mining districts. His connection to Hearst involved a swirl of others, including Marcus Daley, James Ben Ali Haggin, and Lloyd Tevis. In Park City, his connections included M.S. Aschheim, Edward P. Ferry, Albion Emery, and his wife, Susanna Bransford, The Silver Queen. How did he use these connections and why do some say that he doubled crossed The Silver Queen?

Mark is a mining engineer with over 30 years of experience in open-pit mining and chemical processing in maintenance, process safety management, and project management. He holds Bachelor’s Degrees in Mining Engineering and Welding Engineering, as well as a Master’s Degree in Physical Metallurgy, all from Montana Tech., in Butte, Montana. He is a long-term resident of Park City.

A mountain host and hiking guide at Park City Mountain Resort, Sandy Brumley is a descendant of iron miners in Minnesota and an avid student of Park City History. This will be the fifth in a series of presentations he has made for the Museum. He is a hike leader for the Museum and a member of Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History.
