Bozeman nonprofit trying to purchase former mine site on Yellowstone NP’s northern border

To date, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition has raised $3.9 million to purchase the mineral rights and mining claims involving 1,368 acres near Gardiner. In addition to acquiring the mining claim from Crevice Mining Group, LLC, the group intends to buy the deed to a 300-acre parcel of land, which it would then transfer to the Custer Gallatin National Forest.
