Blackhawk Mine, Broadwater County, Montana.
The Blackhawk is a small mine exploring a pipe-like ore body in Mississippian Madison limestone.  The mine is developed by three shallow shafts and several pits.  Most activity at the mine dates from before 1900.  The mine has been a small but consistent producer of wulfenite, vanadinite, mimetite, descloizite, and rarely gold, cerussite, linarite, and caledonite.
