Specializing in minerals from Montana


Dandy Mine, Broadwater County, Montana.
The Dandy explored several orebodies localized along fractures and favorable bedding planes in quartzite.  The mine is developed by several shafts and several thousand feet of drifts and crosscuts.  Whenever the Dandy was in operation, it shipped the highest grade crude lead ore in the state of Montana.  The Dandy has been the source of small ugly wulfenite with sandy cerussite.
