Rob The Bureau of Mines has estimated that demonstrated U.S. reserves of gold are 85 million ounces. 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 Mines The Black Leg Mine is located in the southeast quarter of section 9. It is the closest claim available to Melrose on Camp Creek. Black Leg claim is about 5600 feet in altitude. A placer operation on a low saddle between Camp Creek and Rochester Basin recovered several thousand dollars in gold (Sahinen 1939). 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) Montana is ranked 7th by the USGS for total gold production in the US and has 31 mining districts. Gold production for the 1800's to 1968 is 17.8 million ounces and large amounts of gold have been mined from 1968 to present. Geologists have predicted that based on the past and the geology of Montana that several large gold and silver deposits will be found and developed in the future.

The placer claims in this district have been worked intermittently since discovery in 1866. Although not well-documented, the district had good placer potential. Along Camp Creek, a steel pipe-line was apparently abandoned before it could be utilized in a large-scale hydraulic operation. A placer operation on a low saddle between Camp Creek and Rochester Basin recovered several thousand dollars in gold (Sahinen 1939). Melrose is on alluvium deposited by the Big Hole River. Eastward are eroded bench lands composed of flat-lying Tertiary deposits of sand, gravel, clay, and volcanic ash. Paleozoic limestones crop out in the foothills farther east. They strike northwest and dip from 45 degrees to 60 degrees southwest. The Paleozoic section includes all formations from the Flathead to the Madison inclusive. Archean schist and quartzite of the Belt series occupy the area east of the Paleozoic rocks to the head of the creeks. Small stocks of quartz monzonite intrude other rocks in Soap Gulch and about four miles up Camp Creek. The Clipper Group, on Wickiup Creek, is in Belt slates and strides northwest and dips 30 degrees northeast. It is 4 to 10 feet wide. The ore consists of malachite, azurite, cuprite, and chalcopyrite in quartz in the oxidized zone and chalcopyrite and pyrite in quartz in the sulphide zone. Igneous rocks are exposed in this vicinity (Winchell 1914; Sahinen 1935).
