August 2005 by Paul L. JonesFor those who have the courage and resources to challenge the environmental opposition, I’d like to bring to their attention a potential new mining district in Montana that was suggested by an exploration project of The Bunker Hill Company about 30 years ago. I have no financial interest in the property or its future but feel the story should be told so that future generations might benefit from the mineral potential.
