Another part of the story of Montana is mining. This is the first of a couple videos I’ll show you exploring the Berkeley Pit near Butte Montana. Once nicknamed the “richest hill in the world”, the Anaconda Mining Company extracted a huge amount of rock from the ground and left a huge open hole in its place. That open pit mine has now filled with inflowing groundwater, creating a huge environmental hazard.
