- North of Helena, reached from U.S. 15 over good road. There's
more to see here than in most ghost towns. This town is not
quite deserted and some mining still goes on, but it's nothing
like the rip-roaring period when Irishman Tommy Cruse's magnificent
Drumlummon Mine poured out $50,000,000. Other mines which
produced handsomely included the Bald Mountain, Empire, West
Belmont, Bell Boy, Penobscot and Shannon.
