Great Eastern Mine, Castle Mountains District, Meagher County, Montana
Originally known as the Great Western and the Great Eastern mines, the mines were consolidated and operated through the shafts of the Great Eastern. The mine exploited an oxidized ore body along the contact between an intrusive and limestone. The mine was worked actively before 1900. Some fine but uncommon wulfenites have been found in the dump material.
