Thanks Richard for the in depth explanation. Again, this may sound like a stupid question, but what is the "end game" for these cores? Are you looking for a specific mineral that you would mine for if enough is present there? This is all very interesting. Steve

Copper and molybdenum mostly, with the hope that there will also be some gold. If it turns out that there is enough of a resource here to warrant a mine, it could easily take 10-20 yrs of additional exploration(mostly drilling), planning, permitting and engineering and at least $US2-3 billion expenditure before the first bar is poured. It's on state land and Alaska is very friendly towards resource development, but the "antis" have been gaining ground for decades and will stop short of nothing to prevent a mine, regardless of where it is, and despite the fact that it's guys like me that go out and find the 'stuff' that everything they own that can't be grown is made of. Unfortunate fact of life.

Fascinating stuff!...except for the part about the anti-(everything) folks.

It would be nice if our metals manufacturers could rely on a domestic source of molybdenum (moly) instead of being held hostage.

They sure would! These breccias are some stunning rock. I've been harping all along that this place is worth more as an industrial rock mine than a copper mine. There is some gorgeous granite with large pink feldspars that is absolutely to die for... never mind that it's down at 2000ft....

For any recreational SxS users in the crowd. We have several of these here. This is what our drilling roads do to them. This rig has been on site only 4 days. We've already killed two of them, one seriously on it's second day here. One of them was on the way to a site a few days ago and had a stick come up through the front somehow and impale the seat cushion just inches from one of our geo's "manhood credentials". He could have taken it right in the femoral and bled our right there. No thanks. By the time we finish this project we'll have an ATV graveyard here. I'll take an old Jeep or my Bronco anytime, thank you.

Hi Richard, it looks awesome! I've just arrived to Tenerife and left my luggages at home, now it's time for a little hiking. Here's the place that I will spend my summer. I love Tenerife's nature, it's always so peaceful. I discovered this place 5 years ago when I was looking for restaurants for sale in Tenerife and ever since I'm spending my summer vacations in here. You should come and visit me!
