The Czarina mine operated for a short time during the last Great War, lies in the southwestern corner of the Butte mining district of Montana. This area was worked during the extensive silver mining in Butte during the 1890's, and was prospected from time to time in later years. The orebody of the mine consists of fissure fillings of manganese mineral oxidized to a certain depth, in a fracture zone of the Boulder Batholith.
