Montana Resources at a Glance

Montana Resources operates an open pit copper and molybdenum mine in Butte, Montana. The operation comprises the Continental mine, crushers and a concentrator facility where tons of raw ore are processed into high-quality metal concentrates. We serve an international market for these important metals.

A Proud and Skilled Workforce

Montana Resources employs approximately 350 people—a proud and skilled workforce, heir to a tradition of mining in Butte dating back to the 1870’s. Butte grew as an early urban industrial center in the Rocky Mountain West to become legend as The Mining City. Montana Resources, one of The Washington Companies, has operated in Butte since 1985, continuing the mining tradition there. We are proud to be a Montana company and accordingly value our beautiful environment and our friendly communities.
