Two companies are looking to mine the largest known iron ore deposit in the West—a 50-year supply at a rate of 1 million metric tons a year.

This document was signed and notarized in a southwest town, and was publicly distributed in 2001. Guess what?! The warehouse floor concrete may have a higher gold assay than the concentrates sitting above it valued at fifty-three million.
