Anaconda, Montana welcomes job growth and economic boom

Anaconda, Montana

A large Murdoch’s store being built in Anaconda is just the latest example of the economic growth being experienced here in the Smelter City.

“For so many years our county was heading the wrong way. Trying to stabilize it was the first step, but now to see this growth is really rewarding,” said Anaconda Chief Executive Bill Everett.

A report from the Montana Department of Labor shows in 2022 Anaconda-Deer Lodge County had an increase of 270 new jobs from the year before. The chief executive credits the Superfund cleanup and the $24 million settlement from the Atlantic Richfield Co. for economic development.
