Thomas Cruse a gold miner - the owner of The Drumlummon Gold Mine -
and he made his fortune mining gold at Drumlummon Marysville -

In 1904, Bishop John Patrick Carroll envisioned building a Cathedral
that would be a fitting monument to our Father God -
a tribute to the Diocese and the city of Helena.

This was a project that had been dear to the heart of
Bishop Brondel, the first bishop in Helena.

In 1905, the land for the Cathedral was purchased by Thomas Cruse.

He was the largest single contributor to the Cathedral project,
although there were many contributors throughout western Montana
as the community raised this beautiful structure....


The Cathedral of St. Helena shown under construction, ca. 1910.
Local mining magnate Thomas Cruse (1836 - 1914) provided much
of the funding to build the church.
Construction began in 1908.
It was dedicated in 1914, and consecrated in 1924.

The St. Helena Cathedral is open year-round,
from 10:00am - 4:00pm.
Daily Mass is held in the Day Chapel on Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday at 8:00am; and on Tuesday and Thursday, 5:20pm.
Pre-arranged guided tours take 1 hour.

history often repeat itself -

Richest Golden Hill on Earth -
still here like yesterday -
Move On - Au get moving -
God Bless

the drill result I see @ the Drumlummon Gold Mine @ shallow
levels are some of the richest I seen -
btw. ex. many year ago;
I was a shareholder in Dickenson gold corp. which is
the Goldcorp Inc. today and the management wanted to shut
down The Red Lake Gold Mine and said it was outmined,
we had mined it down to about 3000' level at about 0.3 oz/t -
I stayed with Rob McEwen who took a drillrig to the bottom of
the mine and we hit above 1/oz/t and today Red Lake Gold Mine
its one of the richest and lowest cost gold mines in Ontario,
Canada - the rest is history.

My opinions are my own and and DD I post should be confirmed as unbiased
