Our Transportation Companies


Montana Resources operates an open pit copper and molybdenum mine in Butte, Montana. The operation comprises the Continental Mine, crushers and a concentrator facility where tons of raw ore are processed into high-quality metal concentrates. We serve an international market for these important metals. Minimizing environmental impact and respecting the land we rely on is one of our top priorities. Montana Resources practices concurrent reclamation, recovering the land to its original state while mining continues. The result creates grassy rolling hills inhabited by deer and wildlife.  Helping local economies thrive is essential to our mission. Wages and taxes paid and local and statewide purchases average more than $100 million annually.
