Specializing in minerals from Montana

Section 8 Prospect, Broadwater County, Montana
Nearly one mile north of the Summit mine, are a number of shallow prospect shafts.  The original names have been lost to time, for convenience they are referred to as the Section 8 prospects as they lie within T4N R1W Sec8.  For the most part, the shallow shafts have been closed by backfilling.  The few remaining dumps and workings have produced a few specimens of secondary copper and lead minerals.    

Here is one of the small pits that make up the Section 8 prospects.  A few secondary copper minerals have come from this pit, mostly malachite.

The remains of a shallow backfilled shaft can be seen slightly above and to the left of the tree in the foreground.  This dump has produced a number of wulfenite micros.
