Hard Times Mine No. 1 & 2 - Two claims joined to facilitate access.
Mineral County, Montana
Mineral County is located in the vast "big sky country" of Montana. The crest of the Bitterroot Mountains divides Montana from Idaho and serves as the county’s western boundary. The topography varies from remote, high alpine lakes to whitewater streams and from heavily forested ridges to smooth rolling meadows.
Hard Times No. 1
W 1/2 of NW 1/2, Section 1, Township 15 North, Range 27 West
Hard Times No. 2
W 1/2 of SW 1/4, Section 1, Township 15 North, Range 27 West
These two claim are prime, gold bearing properties. Test results have been most encouraging when panning, sluicing and test dredging. The Hard Times Mine No 1 & 2 has not been actively mined since the great Cedar Creek Gold Rush. The claim has not been worked by us beyond routine sampling and assessment work.
The Hard Times Placer Gold Claim offers impressive mining opportunities. An extensive amount of exposed bedrock as well as the natural streambed support productive gold recovery. The claim is suited for most types of gold mining activites from panning, sluicing and high-banking to metal detecting, dowsing and dredging.
