How To Find Montana Sapphires

How To Find Montana Sapphires

How To Find Montana Sapphires

A couple of years ago a client contacted me to examine a property he had just purchased. He wanted to know what the property might contain in gold values.  I researched the publications available to me and found that considerable gold had been recovered from this property before the turn of the century.

Usually a good producing lode mine is the logical source of placer gold and evidence of structure and geological occurrences are well documented on most of the known districts. I gathered up some testing gear I had and dug a few test pits, while we only found a little bit of gold, which was nice, but the pleasant surprise was these high quality sapphires I found. This was  good news for the owner. This small collection was mine run and not heat treated. You can bet mining this property may be in our future!!!!
