Judge Mine, Castle Mountains District, Meagher County, Montana
The Judge mine was developed by a single shaft exploiting an oxidized lead ore body in metamorphosed Cambrian limestone. The mine was apparently last worked prior to 1900. Wulfenite microcrystals have been rarely found at the mine.
The caved shaft of the Judge, now enclosed by a "protective" fence.
