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.
