The Mineral Hill Mine at Jardine is an Archaean lode gold deposit in the Beartooth Mountains of south-western Montana, USA.

Mineralisation is hosted by 3.0 to 3.2 Ga lower amphibolite facies grunerite bearing banded iron formation and meta-turbidites on the Wyoming Craton.

Three types of ore have been mined, namely: 1). the dominant style where Au is contained in marginal wall rock altered envelopes of arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite, hornblende and grunerite sandwiching 0.01 to 1 m thick quartz veins within iron formation,   2). in generally less than 5 m thick banded quartz veins with little or no accompanying wall rock alteration, and   3). in deformed quartz boudins.

The total pre-mine resource has been estimated at 0.9 Mt of ore @ 9.33 g/t Au.
