    They found out that the owner of the mine that the epa caused spill, owns

    more mines in the area. The epa wanted to do a super fund on the site,met

    with resistants. Wait a few years and mining will begin again. The owner will

    apply for mining permits.The mines in that area is the best location for the

    so called new material,that just burned in China.

    So... The EPA caused a spill such that they might schedule the site on the NPL!? --- Heh! So goes their anti-plutocracy facade!:D:D:D -- 'Tho I must admit, I don't get it?:confused: -- What's in it for them (beyond the usual graft, kickbacks and proceeds from 'legal' extortion) to overequal the inevitable 'hit' on the 'PR front'??? --- And by what stretch of logic is this helpful to 'big business'??? --- Perhaps a link would be helpful?:)

    Best regards

    Post #1 is entertaining as Loosie's Posts generally are. HP trying to decode, clarify and respond is priceless.

    I wonder if there is a feature called: "Most off-topic poster"

    Loosie would be the king.

    I'm glad to see your still around, Loosie. Not as much as you did, but you're here.

    What did you mean with the post "Hey guys, I'm back"? You haven't been much around after that post.....

    The title should be "Big Business helps themselves- as usual". How come we let assholes dig holes in the ground, extract the wealth, walk-away, and then let the tax payers deal with the mess?

    You should have listened too the Denver Post reporter on P.B.S. trying to explain the same thing.

    Why.....the water was not moving...need to mine the special mineral, sparse supply in U.S.

    Sorta like fracking ,laws have been past to protect information. Didn't take time to google and get the

    mineral name,China has a good supply. Find out what mineral burned in China and what mineral is in the mine.

    More to come............

    Are we sure the EPA is "helping" the mining side of the business and not the "cleanup" side of the business? Follow the money. Someone will get paid big bucks for this cleanup. Someone who may have contributed a lot of money to a political party and looking to reap some return on that investment.

    But, I could be getting cynical in my old age.

    I remember another example now, developers couldn't build because of trees being

    in the way and too costly too remove.The state put them on the exotic list,paid too have

    them removed.

    Whenever you make a law, without considering human nature, your going to need a lot more laws.

    @ br-549- Nature and the humans along the spoiled river and outlets for miles and miles.

    Consider there need for information,and the heavy metal settling on the bottom. The laws

    of nature helpless for years and years.

    I saw the yellow color. I haven’t heard of any odor. Hopefully no volitoles.

    I have seen no pH reports, BOD or COD reports, and no metal results.

    It would be nice to see the before and after numbers.

    What is this mysterious material?

    It is used in cell phones and T.V. . Try the google...they talk of shortages in

    U.S. and China. They reclaim it from old cell phones and T.V's..will try to

    google.

    link it here. They show you on the periodic table, the rare earth metals.

    Ok, if there are REs in that water, wouldn’t that be a good thing?

    Isn’t it hard to find a place where these REs pour out of the ground?

    Should we not celebrate?

    Along with cheap and abundant energy, RE materials is icing on the cake.

    Great news, I don’t see anything toxic.

    What’s the down side?
