Chris Tucker Minerals
Specializing in minerals from Montana


Parker Mine, Broadwater County, Montana
The Parker mine explored several small replacement bodies in limestone near an igneous intrusive.  Development at the mine consists of several shallow shafts, pits, and adits.  For the most part, the workings have been closed by backfilling.  The mine has been a small producer of secondary minerals, most notably rosasite, vanadinite, mimetite, chlorargyrite, cerussite, plattnerite, and rarely wulfenite.

This shallow adit is one of the few underground workings at the mine that have not been closed by AML programs.
