The copper mining industry had an enormous impact on the state's political, economic, and cultural makeup.

Montana Mosaic 1: When Copper Was King
This 22-minute video explores the profound impact of the copper mining industry on Montana. This video can be viewed as two shorter segments if desired. Segment 1 (10:55) focuses specifically on the Copper King's 1894 Capital Fight between Helena and Anaconda. Segment 2 (11:13) focuses on the tensions between laborers and management in Butte's copper mines in the early 20th century. These tensions paralleled the growth of unions in Butte. This video presents an overarching theme of industrialization during the period from 1892 until World War I-era Montana. http://mhs.mt.gov/Education/MontanaMosaic.aspx
Historic Mining Town - Butte, Montana
Home to gold, silver and eventually copper mines, Butte was a mining boomtown, once the largest city for hundreds of miles, and called "the Richest Hill on Earth" because of the value extracted from the area. At one point it had hundreds of saloons and a robust Red Light District (in operation until the early 1980s). Open pit mining began in the 1950s, including the opening of the Berkeley Pit in 1955, the largest truck-operated open pit copper mine in the United States. The Berkeley Pit was shut down in 1982. When water pumps at other mines were shut down, the pit filled with water loaded with toxic heavy metals. Today the pit is a major environmental hazard and Superfund site. Mining has declined, and the historic Uptown district shows its age, but the city has done a lot to preserve Uptown and to showcase its mining history.

They had underground tunnel systems that are still there today but are all covered up and you can't access anymore. Some cool stuff went on in this town. This was one of the biggest Copper Mines and produced copper for the entire country. Everything is now protected and just sits vacant now. You see a lot of trucks in this video.

Living History in Butte: My Favorite Forgotten Montana Boom-Gone-Bust Town
Evel Knieval's childhood playground, Butte Montana is rough and tumble Wild West frontier city through and through. Located in the Silver Bow Creek, the city was put on the map as a mining boomtown in the late 19th century and lays claim to be the “Richest Hill On Earth” thanks to the profitable minerals extracted underground. During its heyday, Butte grew into a thriving city and is now home to the second largest national historic district after New Orleans. On a visit you don’t want to miss an Underground Walking Tour. A highlight stop is the the Roaring 20’s Rookwood Speakeasy in the basement of the former Rockwood Hotel. Inside, a musty smell adrifts and you can imagine the room in its heyday in the 20’s with jazz, flappers and gambling. With such an extensive mining history, a trip to Butte should also include a trip to the World Museum of Mining, which is built on actual mine yard: The Orphan Girl. The tour also lets you peep into a shaft station, used to bring miners up and down to the veins below the city of Butte. Towards the end of the tour, we were all told to turn our headlamps off to see what total darkness looks like, and then with just a small flicker, what it was like with the faint glow of candles workers depended on in the beginning mining era. It should come as no surprise that a town with a rugged individualism mentality like Butte's also has its own distillery making spirits with names tied to Butte’s mining past. At Headframe Sprits, owned by Butte raised John McKee and his wife Courtney, you will find everything from gin and whiskey to vodka and bourbon. Head to the old fashioned bar tasting room to sample the liquor and the cocktails they create from it. The top seller is the Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur, which is named for the mine. It’s similar to Bailey’s in taste and is mixed with Root Beer to create my favorite, the Dirty Orphan Girl cocktail.

Berkeley Pit, Butte, Montana Time Lapse 1984-2012 (from Google/Time Magazine)
The Berkeley Pit is a former open pit copper mine in Butte, Montana, USA. Over the active lifespan of the Berkeley (1955-1982), approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the Pit. Put another way, the Berkeley Pit produced enough copper to pave a four-lane highway four inches thick from Butte, Montana to Salt Lake City and 30 miles beyond. Since closure (1982), the Pit has been filling with toxic water, and managed as a federal Superfund environmental cleanup site. Visit www.pitwatch.org for more info.

Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit Copper Mining Site Butte Montana Virgin Mary Statue
Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit huge Copper Mining Site Our Lady of the Rockies in Butte Montana is the second Talles Statue in the USA Can You guess the First..;-) http://www.1ownercarguy.com Butte is a Western Mine Town and The Richest hill In the World and Butte has huge Virgin Mary Statue on top of the mountains overlooking the city Our Lady of the Rockies. The Statue is Lit up att night you can also do a tour and see it up close in the Spring and Summer. This Statue is 90 Feet tall the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil is only 99 feet so pretty close considering just how Small Butte Montana is. The only Statue Bigger than Our Lady of the Rockies is The Statue of Liberty.. The Berkley Pit was the Richest Mountain in the world at the time. They produced enough Copper to pave a Four-Lane Highway four inches thick from Butte to Salt Lake City which is about 350 to 400 miles. That is very impressive. Pause and read the paper it is pretty cool how much rock they pulled out of the pit. They are closed in the winter time or I would of showed you the actual pit itself. As I drove around I tried to zoom in on the giant Virgin Mary statue that they have up on top of the hill but I couldn't get that good of a shot of it. It is not the size of the one in Brazil but it is huge and quite impressive. From Wikipedia Our Lady of the Rockies is a 90-foot (27 m) statue, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, that sits atop the Continental Divide overlooking Butte, Montana. It is the second tallest statue in the United States after The Statue of Liberty.[1] The statue was built by volunteers using donated materials to honor women everywhere, especially mothers. The base is 8,510 feet above sea level and 3,500 feet above the town. The statue is lit and visible at night. The statue was first imagined by local resident Bob O'Bill. In 1979, his wife was seriously ill with cancer. He promised the Blessed Virgin Mary that he would make a 5 foot statue of her in his yard if his wife recovered.[2] When she recovered he began the project with his fellow workers who gradually changed the initial vision to a 90-foot-high mountain top statue. Many people in Butte donated materials and time to make the statue a reality. The design for the statue was engineered by Laurien Eugene Riehl. He was a retired engineer for the Anaconda Company who donated his engineering skills to the project. The statue had to withstand the powerful windsheers that buffet the ridge tops. Joe Roberts donated his lot and buildings for the construction of the statue. The statue was airlifted from Roberts Rocky Mountain Equipment to its present site on the Continental Divide. Work on the project began December 29, 1979. Volunteers spent many summer evenings blasting a road to the top of the Rockies, sometimes making only 10 feet of progress a day. The base of the statue was poured in September 1985 with 400 tons of concrete.

Toxic Superfund Put Near Critical Level In Butte, Montana
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — It was an unusual and unfortunate confluence of events: A larger-than-normal number of geese was making a later-than-normal migration over Montana when a snowstorm blew in at the wrong time and sent them soaring to the wrong place. The throngs of white birds splashed down in a 50 billion-gallon toxic stew that is part of the nation's largest Superfund site. At least 3,000 died. Residents of this mining city say the snow goose deaths this fall were a wake-up call that raises broader questions about the Berkeley Pit and whether federal regulators will be ready when the former copper mine that collects heavily acidic, metal-laden water reaches capacity. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2017-01-23-US--Toxic%20Pit/id-5982c8a2a30b4634b525794028b0f3ff http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Mines Management's Doug Dobbs Talks About the Idaho Silver District in Montana
Mines Management, Inc. (TSX:MGT,NYSE-MARKET:MGN) President Doug Dobbs, spoke to the Investing News Network at the 2015 PDAC conference in Toronto about the Montanore silver-copper project in northwestern Montana. Montanore lies on the northern extension of the Idaho Silver district, "home to some of the world's largest and most infamous silver mines such as the Sunshine Mine. Bunker Hill Mine, and the currently-operating Lucky Friday mine, as well as the Galena in the Coeur," says Mr. Dobbs. Montanore has been going thru a "prolonged period of permitting for the last decade. We are gratified to understand that the permitting process is nearing a conclusion. The final EIS is complete and will be going to print sometime during the month of March, and that will begin a record of decision process that's expected to last for upwards of a hundred days. So we hope to see final approval permits approved coming in sometime in the third or fourth quarter of this year," reported by Mr. Dobbs.

Comet - A Montana Ghost Town – near Boulder, Montana MT
The Comet Mine, between Helena and Butte Montana, was discovered in 1874. The town of Comet was platted and surveyed in 1876. Comet was home to over 300 residents and the town included businesses, 22 saloons, a post office, homes, school for 20 children, and the Dailey Hotel. A new owner built the processing plant in 1926 that you see today. The new operation employed 100 men and continued until 1941 when the mine was exhausted and operations permanently stopped. The mine produced $20 million in ore (in 1941 dollars!) that included lead, zinc, copper, silver, and gold. Today the area is a ghost town with one resident. A couple dozen structures remain behind in various states of decay. Unfortunately, this area has not been set aside for protection or preservation and may be ravaged by forest fires and possibly more vandalism. This video shows the remnants of Comet and its mill in July 2014.

Butte, Montana - The Richest Hill on Earth
Wheel Stories travels to Butte, Montana and pays tribute to a unique and fascinating American town. Referred to as “The Richest Hill on Earth”, Butte was one of the largest cities in the Rocky Mountain region during the copper boom of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The population swelled to 100,000 residents as vast mining operations were built and conducted within the town’s business and residential districts. The mines attracted workers from around the globe and miles of tunnels and mine shafts were carved beneath the city. The uptown section thrived with busy hotels, saloons and brothels. In the mid-1950s, Butte transitioned from shaft mining to open pit mining. The immense Berkeley Pit was abandoned in the 1980s and became filled with toxic water, laden with acid and heavy metals. The pit has become one of our biggest federal superfund sites. Today, skeletal headframes dot the Butte landscape and provide a stunning commemoration of the town’s colorful mining heritage. Butte and nearby Anaconda are designated as the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. The towns feature numerous classic examples of early 20th century architecture. The population of Butte, however, now stands at roughly 34,000 and many buildings sit empty. The silent structures remind me of Edward Hopper paintings in 3 dimensional form. Take note that legendary motorcycle stuntman Evel Knievel was born and raised in Butte. Each July the community celebrates Evel Knievel Days in honor of the famed daredevil.

History of Class Struggle in Butte Montana
Recently I paid a visit to Butte Montana where Dick Gibson of the Historical Tours Programs was kind enough to give me a tour of Butte and explain some it's early 20th century labor history. More videos forthcoming, sorry for the shaky camera in this first clip- I am truly an amateur filmmaker. Butte only gets a fraction of the tourism it deserves; there are underground speakeasies, brothels, cops moonlighting as robbers, the largest collection of modern Chinese textiles outside of China and more. Butte is an abnormal city where I feel normal- almost nowhere else do you have this level of class consciousness and history of militancy combined with cute celtic accents sustained by mountain isolation.

Frank Little and the IWW
Franklin Henry Little (1878–1917), an organizer for the Western Federation of Miners and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), fought in some of the early twentieth century’s most contentious labor and free-speech struggles. Following his lynching in Butte, Montana, his life and legacy became shrouded in tragedy and family secrets. In her book, Frank Little and the IWW, author Jane Little Botkin chronicles her great-granduncle’s fascinating life and reveals its connections to the history of American labor and the first Red Scare. Having scoured the West for firsthand sources in family, library, and museum collections, Botkin melds the personal narrative of an American family with the story of the labor movements that once shook the nation to its core. In doing so, she throws into sharp relief the lingering consequences of political repression. (September 28, 2017)

Miners Union Hall – 125 Years Later – Granite Ghost Town, Montana MT
The Miners Union Hall in the ghost town of Granite, Montana (above Philipsburg) has not aged well! Unfortunately her days were numbered at an early age! She was built in 1890 for $22,000 by the proud community of Granite. She was dedicated on December 31, 1890 with a Grand Dedication Ball. Granite had never seen a night like this before or after! She became the town’s showplace and was the hub of social life of this active mining town. In the exquisite three story building, she housed the union leaders offices and had a lounge and recreation rooms that contained billiard and card tables. The Miners Union Hall also contained a Lodge Hall and meeting rooms for various clubs and secret orders. A small library and council room were upstairs along with a reception room, ante-room and ticket booth. The Miners Union hall had the Northwest’s finest maple dance floor that supported concerts, celebrations, plays and operas. A specialty designed stage was installed for traveling theatricals, touring minstrel shows, local performances of melodramas and vaudeville acts. She was quite a lady! Three years later on August 1st, 1893 an order came to shut down the mines. Within 24 hours the town was almost deserted. The once proud Miners Union Hall was abandoned and fell into ruin. It was said that card and pool tables were still in the building in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Vandals, scavengers and Mother Nature worked in unison to strip the building of all valuables including the springboard maple dance floor. What a shame! Heavy winter snow also took its toll of the building, dropping roof timbers and floor joists to ground level. In 1966 vandals set fire to what remained. The once proud Miners Union Hall is in ruins and her walls will not be standing much longer.
