Schmidt Mine, Madison County, Montana.
The Schmidt mine lies high in the Tobacco Root mountains. The mine has been a historical producer of lead-gold ores and wulfenite specimens. For those familiar with Horton's 1916 work, Molybdenum; Its Ores and Their Concentration, the Schmidt is the one Montana wulfenite producing mine investigated during their study.
The dumps to the Schmidt can be seen near the summit in this photo.
