Buy Gold and Silver in Montana
Montana, known as the Big Sky State, is also nicknamed the Treasure State, and for good reason. In addition to ranching, agriculture, and tourism, mining and other extraction industries play a large role in the economy of Montana. Lumber, oil, natural gas, coal, and hard-rock minerals are all key players in the economy. Copper mining, especially, was once big business in Montana. Gold and silver were also extensively mined in Montana -- indeed, the motto of the state is Spanish, meaning "gold and silver."
Montana also has one of the few large palladium deposits on the planet -- the Stillwater Mining Complex. Palladium mined here is used to produce palladium bars and rounds. Montana is sparsely populated, but does have a population of over a million residents. With its deep-rooted history with gold and silver mining, its unsurprising that Montana still boasts several of the best gold and silver dealers in the area.
