Abstract

The Elkhorn Wilderness study area, near Helena, Montana, was studied. Substantiated resource potential for gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, and iron was identified in three areas and a copper-molybdenum porphyry deposit exists in a fourth area of substantiated resource potential. Several broad areas with probable mineral-resource potential for all the above metals except iron were also identified.
