Fres, I forgot about Mitsubishi. Remember that Tech-Cominco sold this disaster to Northern for
$85 M. Then, the insiders pumped the claims and dumped onto the retail suckers.
The EPA could make this into something where everybody wins, but that is not what the EPA wants to do. As long as the Obama gang of socialists, supported by environmental extremists is in charge, the EPA does not want everybody to win. What it wants to for the government to take over as much of all businesses as possible, and to regulate and control everyone's affairs as much as they can. Look at their attack on the coal industry, for example. The EPA has fallen in line with out socialist president, and what they want is to reduce American prosperity, freedom and exceptionalism, and they are hard at work doing it.
When you say everybody wins, I take that to mean you get made whole for a #$%$ investment.
The opposition to this catastrophe is not going away.
On the other hand:
Only the rats and the retail bagholders remain.
There will NEVER be a mine at pebble.
"A Canadian-based firm, Northern Dynasty Minerals, is trying to start construction on the Pebble Mine project, which it predicts will create 1,000 direct jobs and generate up to $180 million in state revenue. "
Instead of grandstanding the EPA could make this endeavor into something where everybody wins.
