Yellowstone Mine, Castle Mountains District, Meagher County, Montana
The Yellowstone was one of the larger mines in the Castle Mountains district. The mine explored an ore body along the contact between an intrusive and limestone. Microcrystals of hemimorphite, wulfenite, and cerussite have been recovered from the mine.
