New Deal Mine, Copperopolis District, Meagher County, Montana
Originally known as the Boss, the New Deal was opened around the turn of the century and produced a small amount of copper ores. The mine exploited a narrow vein cutting Belt series sediments. Chalcopyrite and its alteration products were the main ore minerals.
This small hoist serviced the shaft of the New Deal.
Looking across the backfilled shaft towards the hoist house.
