As a child in the 60's and early 70's I went fishing in many lakes in NW Montana including a few just West of Whitefish called; Beaver, Little Beaver and Dollar lake.
On the shores on Beaver lake in a couple spots was a deposit of what I can only describe as a white clay that extended into the water. I spent many hours as a youngster playing with that clay, making various figure and forms.
I would like to ask if anyone has use a locally produced (white) clay from the area?
Coordinates to where we used to launch the boat and comp on the deposit.
