Mineral Park Road leads back to a huge mine. There is no town of Mineral Park anymore. The signed turnoff and a historical marker for Mineral Park lie 14 miles northwest of Kingman on US 93 at mileposts 58, Mohave County Highway 255.
The Mineral Park area contains the world's largest turquoise deposit (not open to the public), which is mined along with decorative rock. You can buy the turquoise from mine owners at their office in So-Hi which is on US 93 north of Kingman.

The huge piles of tailings belong to a copper and molybdenum mine. Mineral Park Mine, operated by Mercator Minerals LTD, is an open-pit copper/molybdenum mine which is expected to produce over 42 million pounds of copper and over 10 million pounds of molybdenum in 2012.

Decorative rock is also mined here and sold to builders and landscape companies. There are no public sales of decorative rock.
