Property Overview


The Easter Lillie (lily) is a twenty (20) acre Lode Mineral Property located in the Pipestone Mining district. Roughly 6 miles east of the city of Butte. The mine was worked for native gold in narrow quartz veins in diorite (Granordite type) host rock. Recovery is reported as less than 300 ounces (291) from mining that occured between 1921 and 1940. The mine was abandoned in 1940 due to the War Act.
The property was taken over in the early 1940s (1942-3) and a small mill was built to crush ores on site. The site was held until 1976 when the claim owner who built the mill passed. The mine was reported as operational each year from 1942-1976 but no numbers were ever reported to federal agencies.
A small exploration company took over the property in 1981 with the big gold boom, they set in timbers and stabilized all of the old workings. This work was completed in 1983 as the price of gold tanked from $800 per ounce to $300 per ounce.
The company renounced their charter in 1991 and blasted the haulage portal of the Easter Lillie closed per their reclamation plan.
Gold Rush Expeditions located the Easter Lillie Mine in 2013. Access was found through a collapsed roof section into the main haulage tunnel. The mine was mapped and documented. Chip samples were taken from exposed veins in the mine. Assays returned from 0.4 oz/T to 3.1 oz.T in AU. Average of 14 chip samples was 0.99 oz/T
The dump material outside the mine was also sampled and assayed. Measured to be approximately 38,000 tons of dump. Average assays reported 0.36 oz/T AU.
The veins and gold in the Pipestone district has never been worked by more than small miners. The massive pit and drifts of the Berkeley Pit in Butte dwarfing any other efforts at development.

The property has excellent access via 4WD roads and could likely be accessed with a high clearance 2WD vehicle. There is a large flat off the main road by the portal that would allow for staging of equipment to clear the front of the portal and also allow for larger trucks to haul out dumps and ore for processing.
Gold is native and largely in quartz and can be crushed and separated.
This is a very high value site in an area that is known for gold production and uncommon to find properties available.

Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. does offer mining consultation services and assistance with permits for a small fee.
