The tribes on the Fort Belknap Reservation in Montana are offering tours of a defunct gold mine they are seeking to clean up.

The state and the Department of Interior signed a record of decision for the open-pit Zortman-Landusky gold mines which are located on the southern border of the reservation. The tribe say the cleanup effort is $33.5 million short.

Tours can be scheduled by calling 353-8305, 353-8411, or 353-8429. The area code is 406.
