Remove the 13ers
From Earth. I agree.
Are you proposing we sell them all to the Climax Mine so they can all be "Bartletted"?

There's not appreciable deposits of molybdenum under most of the 13ers. There might be some under Clinton, but they don't yet know whether or not it would be economical to go after it. There's definitely some under Arkansas, but given the water supply issues and potential contamination it's doubtful it will ever be mined. The Ore body where Henderson mine is is already mostly mined out. I believe current projections from Freeport have that mine & Mill shutting down in 2025.

The technical term for fileting a mountain - Bartletting. Gotta get at those sweet, sweet molybdenum caches. They're right under the razor fang (so named by Chicago Transplant).

Bring back TallGrass. It became evident in a recent thread that he's missed. The forum has spoken!
FREE TallGrass!
I'll sign that petition! (Sorry Bill)
Hello All! I'm only popping in briefly to COMPLETELY DISAGREE that TallGrass should ever be welcomed back- and it has already been established that he is currently using an account with the name PlayGneiss so he can argue with everyone via PrivateMessage: he is obsessed with arguing. We were sworn enemies because I was convinced he was slowly but surely ruining this otherwise fantastic forum, not just by being irritating and giving terrible (and sometimes downright dangerous) advice to newbies, but also being an internet bully, continually trying to dominate this forum.

For those that wonder if he has Autism or Asperger's (and yes it is inappropriate to discuss in a public forum)- it would not give someone a free pass to behave like an internet bully.

But this is really, truly, my final forum post, because nobody wants me around either. I do still read the invaluable info on this site, and enjoy doing so much more now that a positive tone generally prevails (with minor exceptions).

Signed,
Brad (a troll that did not really intend to become a troll)

P.S. And anyone that thinks Bill Middlebrook would delete somebody's account without a good reason, vastly underestimates BM.

TG's account was not deleted, his posts are still available in old threads.
