Santa Anita Mine, Broadwater County, Montana
The Santa Anita explored orebodies localized along a fault cutting quartzite.  The mine is developed by several shafts and several thousand feet of drifts.  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 wulfenite and vanadinite with the occasional cerussite and hemimorphite specimen.
