Remote Montana gold mine. The heart of the Rochester Mining District has a long and detailed history. The Gold Nugget Mine Mine is in a quiet area in the historic Rochester mining district. The ores show substantial amounts of native gold (common in the area), iron, copper, quartz and pyrites. The mine dumps could most likely be processed at a very good profit.
The shaft would need to be rehabilitated but a few days work could get it secure and you to the high grade ore body.
Remnants and items seen in the area indicate there has been work done after 1950. It is estimated by the surveyors that the claim has been worked intermittently in the 1900s.
There is direct BLM road access to this claim and room for staging, parking and other operations.
History of the Mines
Montana is ranked 7th by the USGS for total gold production in the US and has 31 mining districts. Gold production for the 1800s to 1968 is 17.8 million ounces and large amounts of gold have been mined from 1968 to present. Geologists have predicted that based on the past and the geology of Montana that several large gold and silver deposits will be found and developed in the future.
The Gold Nugget Mine Mine Mine is located in the northeast quarter of section 32. It is about half a mile northeast of Rochester.
Rocks in this district are dominantly schist and gneiss that are locally intruded by small plutons of quartz monzonite, diorite, and aplite related to the Boulder batholith. Ore deposits are mostly northeast-trending veins in gneiss and schist; they contain gold, silver, arsenopyrite, pyrite, and lesser amounts of lead, zinc, and copper minerals in a quartz gangue. Much of the ore has been oxidized to a depth of 600 feet and consists of quartz, limonite, and oxidized copper and lead minerals.
