The Bohemian Mine is a past Gold and Silver producer in the historic Park/Hassle mining district of Montana.
Featuring multiple shafts and adits driven into the rich surface deposits, a standing bunkhouse and blacksmith structures from the 1950’s and excellent access.
Located in the beautiful mountains of Broadwater county, the Bohemian Mine was developed into a mineralized outcropping of epithermal volcanic composite.
The rich deposits contain high gold values in the epithermal veins.
Quartz veins contain Galena, free-milling Gold, and auriferous pyrites.
Base metals such as Lead, Zinc and Iron are also present in various amounts.
Primary workings of the Bohemian consist of four shallow inclined shafts and three small tunnel style adits.
Vein strikes are visible on the face of the adits and the prospect shaft collars.
As the workings have been driven into the inclined hillside, erosion and snowmelt have closed any open portals for nearly 15 years.
An estimated 4-7 yards of overburden requires removal for better access the deposit and any older stock-workings.
Most of the lode deposits in the Park district are quartz veins in andesite which is intruded by quartz monzonite.
The ore consists chiefly of auriferous pyrite accompanied by arsenopyrite and galena; the principal value is in gold (Stone, 1911, p. 89-91).
Recorded lode Gold production between 1864-1956 is 80,300 ounces of Gold.
Separate Mine spills are located beneath each of the include shafts and adit prospects on the parcel.
Mine spill is compromised of host rock (mainly andesite), quartz, and low-mid grade ore.
Spill is present in an estimated amount of 1500 -to-5000 tons.

A Level space for camping, parking and production staging.
