You certainly cannot say that Tim Montana has not worked hard over the course of his career. I got to know Tim back when he was pushing his first single, "Butte, America" way back in 2007 and he was working hard then as he came to our radio stations personally and convinced us to give the song a few spins on the local airwaves.

The Mountain Con is known for it's "Mile High, Mile Deep" paint job as well as for having its surrounding area turned into a beautiful recreation area. The Belmont's hoisthouse is now a bustling Senior Citizens center. But what about some of Butte's lesser-known mines whose headframes are still standing? Can you name these mines just by sight?
