Approximately one-half of the total resources are estimated to be by-product gold, while 40% of the remaining one-half (56 million ounces) could be mined for gold alone ... Most U.S. gold resources are in the nation's western states. About 80% of the U.S. gold resources are estimated to be in Alaska, California, Idaho, Montana and Washington. (Earthsearch, Inc. 1983)History of the MinesThe Rochester Creek GOLD Mine is located in the Southwest quarter of section 18. The (Jack Rabbit) district was of some significance from 1920 into the mid-1930s. While it is sometimes said old mines have been 'worked out' as the saying means there is no gold left, the truth is "it is better to say they are worked over; it is also true that the primitive methods used and the wasteful haste to get rich indulged in, left much of the gold in the ground, so that improved methods ... will give even better results than those first obtained." (MBMG Open Report 466) During surveying gold was easily found in the material by panning. The claim boasts excellent access and does get visitors driving through on the road. The claim was originally surveyed by Northwest Gold And Silver Mines and sampled for rich, free gold deposits in the gravels.MMC#239200 There is likely to be some native silver and possibly some relics to be found on the claim but the primary commodity will be gold. Mining District Information Rochester District Information HISTORIC CONTEXTaka RabbitThe Rochester or Rabbit mining district was discovered in the 1860s when outcroppings of rich, oxidized gold ores were found on Watseca Hill on the south slopes of the Highland Mountains northwest of Twin Bridges. By 1869, eight hundred men lived in tents and log cabins on the surrounding hills. The Watseca lode, which was discovered in the 1860s, was the key to the region. The region was too dry for successful placer mining. Several arrastras such as the White's and the Ward's along with stamp mills such as the Rochester mill and the Allen mill successfully reduced the gold ore. A ten-stamp mill, built in 1868 at a cost of $34,000, cleaned up $15,286 in gold in nine weeks. By 1871 mining declined as the free-milling gold was nearly exhausted.The passage of the 1872 mining laws gave lode mining a shot in the arm by revising antiquated claim laws based on placer mining. Lode mining was revived in the district in 1873 with the successful operation of the Day, Julia Homes, Pavcippa, and Watseca mines. By 1880, mining was back in full swing with many new claims operating. By 1896, F.R. Merk owned the Watseca mine, the largest property continuously operating within the district. Through lessees, free-milling gold averaging $30-75 at ton was recovered. The Buffalo mine, which adjoined the Watseca, was also extensively developed. Although gold was the prevailing deposit in the area, lead and small amounts of copper were also found. To treat these varied ores, concentrators and small lead smelters were built in or near the town (Swallow 1891; Sahinen.1935; Wolle 1963).The period of greatest activity was from 1898 to 1905 when the Watseca was in full production. The district produced gold ore valued at several million dollars , as well as appreciable amounts of lead and silver. At this time the population of the town of Rochester reported rose to 5,000. Stamp mills, chlorination mills, and other types of concentrators, as well as lead smelters were built in the district. The increased cost of labor and materials cut production profits to such an extent that by 1906, only eight mines continued to operate. Owners began to sell off their properties or to abandon them. By 1907 the district was almost deserted and remained so until 1926. A brief three year boom resulted from production on the Emma, Colusa, and Jack Rabbit claims, as lead-silver properties. A mill, erected at the Emma mine by the Butte Madison Mines Corporation, ran until 1932. Since then the district has lain dormant (Winchell 1914; Sahinen 1935; Wolle 1963).Geologically, the district is composed of fine grained gneisses and mica and hornblende schists of Archean age. Sills and dikes of aplitic granite have been intruded roughly parallel to the banding in the metamorphic rocks which in general trend northeast and dip 15-40 degrees to the northwest. Stocks of diorite and andesite flows are also present in the area east of Rochester. Basalt flows occur to the west. The main body of the Boulder batholith is exposed a few miles to the north and the igneous bodies of Rochester may be upward reaching fingers of the main bodies which may underlie the whole region (Winchell 1914; Sahinen 1935).The ore deposits are in well defined veins which usually strike north or northeast and dip steeply to the west. The veins are associated with the granite dikes. They are commonly narrow but locally very rich. A few veins are wide and of low grade. Most veins are valued chiefly for their gold content but some are silver-lead veins. The ore minerals include: native gold, argentiferous galena, cerussite, malachite, chrysocolla, pyrite in a gangue of quartz. Vanadinite and exdemite have also been reported (Winchell 1914; Sahinen 1935).Although statistics are not available for the early years, it has been estimated that the district produced $2 million from 1868 to 1903. From 1904 to 1912 the district produced 10,314 tons of ore that was reduced to 4,893.1 ounces of gold worth $101,149; 24,923 ounces of silver worth $15,496; 1,913 pounds of copper worth $321; and 382,086 pounds of lead worth $17,685. Total value of the ores during this period was $134,651. Prior to 1932 the district was credited with a total production of 2.5 million (Winchell 1914; McClernan 1981).Upper Rochester North PlacerPast Producer in Madison county in Montana, United States with commodity GoldMapXMLJSONKMLGeologic informationIdentification informationDeposit ID10135392MAS/MILS ID0300570290Record typeSiteCurrent site nameUpper Rochester North PlacerGeographic coordinatesPoint of referenceOre BodyGeographic coordinates:-112.52088, 45.6624 (WGS84)Elevation1938Location accuracy500(meters)Political divisions (FIPS codes)Madison(county)Montana(state)United States(country)North America(continent)Land(continent)USGS map quadranglesWickiup Creek(quadrangle 1:24,000 scale)Butte South(quadrangle 1:100,000 scale)Dillon(quadrangle 1:250,000 scale)Hydrologic units (watersheds)Big Hole(hydrologic unit)Missouri Headwaters(hydrologic accounting unit)Missouri Headwaters(hydrologic subregion)Missouri(hydrologic region)Geographic areasCountryStateCountyUnited StatesMontanaMadisonPublic Land Survey System informationMeridianTownshipRangeSectionFractionStateMontana Principal002 S007 W18NENESWMontanaCommoditiesCommodityImportanceGoldPrimaryNearby scientific dataOre Body (1)Pre-Belt gneiss, schist, and related rocksListMapEconomic informationEconomic information about the deposit and operationsOperation typePlacerDevelopment statusPast ProducerCommodity typeMetallicSignificantNoLand statusOwnership categoryUnknownReference informationLinks to other databasesAgencyDatabase nameAcronymRecord IDNotesU.S. Bureau of MinesMinerals Availability SystemMAS0300570290Bibliographic referencesDepositMBM&G MEM 26, 1948, P85-86Reporter informationTypeDateNameAffiliationCommentReporter25-SEP-92Western Field Operations Center (WFOC)U.S. Bureau of Mines.
