The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, December 8, with a presentation by Anthony Roth titled “The Butte Stope Books – What We Know About What Lies Below.”
This talk will be an introductory level presentation explaining what the Butte Stope Books are and what information the books hold. The talk will also explain stope book symbology and why the information in these books are important to Silver Bow County.
