HISTORIC CONTEXT

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

BOUNDARIES OF THE DISTRICT

Since the district was not mentioned in the mining literature, there are no boundary discussions. Neither Lyden (1948) nor Sahinen (1935) discuss mines in the area.

Figure 1 shows the district as defined by the AMRB (1994).

HISTORIES OF SELECTED MINES

No historic mines appear in the mining literature.
