Investigations of the McLaren mine and mill areas and the Glengary mine area in the vicinity of Cooke City, Montana, were undertaken from July 1973 through September 1975, to examine the acid mine drainage (AMD) from these sources and determine the feasibility of rehabilitating these subalpine mining areas and mill area. A biological study was conducted to determine the existing degraded biological conditions of streams affected by AMD and the extent of reclamation necessary to restore a viable fishery to the stream. Reclamation proposed includes recontouring and revegetating land surfaces, sealing shafts in the mine area, and isolating the tailings from Soda Butte Creek.
