Montana Resources is a Montana-based company fortunate to be located and operating in a community that supports our industry. Montana Resources owes its success to the people of Butte and approximately 390 men and women that make up our workforce.
Many of our people come from generations of miners. Our employees work in a wide spectrum of professions, trades, and skills: pipe fitters, mechanics, machinists, mining engineers, geological engineers, metallurgical engineers, chemists, electricians, accountants, equipment operators, and office staff. Each person is necessary for efficient operation of a modern mine, and each is a valuable asset to us.
We are concerned that our workers perform their jobs safely, and with respect for the environment we all work, live and play in. The highest priority of Montana Resources is to ensure that workers come to work and return home safely each day. Montana Resources has built a team where every employee has the responsibility to be a “courageous leader” in safety.
Montana Resources and its employees were selected as the 2005 Business of the Year by the Butte Chamber of Commerce. In 2008, Montana Resources employees received the Harold McGrath Award from the Butte Chamber of Commerce for contributing significantly to the life of the community. In 2019, Montana Resources and the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation again received the Harold McGrath Award.
