Recently, a left-leaning Arizona federal judge, James Soto, who is an Obama appointee, shut down a proposed copper mining project for the flimsiest of reasons. He basically disregarded and rewrote federal mining law.
Production of the Lithium will be completed in a 48-hour process with much less waste and a substantial increase of recovery rates from around 40% with conventional evaporation to near 90%.

Nevada gold mines produced only about 6 percent more gold in 2010 than they did the year before, but the value of that gold was up a whopping 33 percent.
