Notes
Survey number HAER MT-38
Building/structure dates: 1890 initial construction
Significance: The camp was constructed at an early date (1890s or shortly thereafter), and for three decades was associated with Gus Pineau, a well-known miner in the area. Up until the 1940s, the Pineau operation was the richest mine in upper Goldcreek, and in some years during the early part of the 20th century, was the richest mine in the entire Pioneer-Goldcreek district. Few of the old gold camps in Montana are as complex or as intact as the Pineau settlement.
