Old Saginaw Lode Mining Claim


PRICE REDUCED!! This mountain retreat is the ideal place to enjoy privacy and recreation.  Situated inside the Beaverhead -Deer Lodge National Forest this property provides the ultimate source for all recreational activities.  With unique mining history, this Patented acreage was run as a copper ore mine between 1914 and 1916, and when copper prices spiked in the early 1940s the mine was briefly opened again.  Remains of old mining cabins and equipment are still present on the property showing a glimpse of this great states’ history.  The one-room cabin could make the ideal hunting camp or family retreat.
