Economic Benefit

As a new member of the Montana community and a partner in its economic growth, we’re excited at the opportunities that Rock Creek offers the region. In fact, the benefit to the local and state economies is staggering: Over the life of the mine (currently estimated at 33-38 years), Rock Creek will provide more than 300 full-time jobs, $667 million in direct payroll, $175 million in tax revenue, and over $400 million in goods and services in the area. While the need for the metals that Rock Creek will produce is global, the economic effects will be felt most strongly in northwestern Montana.
