HISTORIC CONTEXT

Very little metallic mineral development has occurred in the Hebgen district in southern Gallatin County. As with other similar districts with little mineralization, the Hebgen district serves to separate other more developed districts.

BOUNDARIES OF THE DISTRICT

There are no boundary discussions in the mining literature since no mining in the area has been reported. Neither Lyden (1948) nor Sahinen (1935) discuss mines in the area.

HISTORIES OF SELECTED MINES

No historic mines appear in the mining literature.
