Good press is a tough sell.

Put up something bad about Kennecott and you'll get a thousand hits.

If some people only knew how much crystalline monoclinic selenium (the red powdery kind) was buried up there in massive dump sites........

I digress.

Along with Arsenic, Cadmium, Crystalline Silica, etc.

They actually do a supreme job at environmental protection.

I don't know if it is the threat of not getting the bond back or just doing the right thing - there might be no difference.

I think they do a pretty good job now. Having worked at the 4th line expansion, Barney's Canyon, Moly Building, Tailings Pond, Refinery, Power Plant, Refinery and the Concentrator I can tell you some stories about stuff that has been buried by the truckload and allowed to leach into the earth and the water supply. There is a reason that the western half of the Valley must purchase all of it's water from other areas that have clean wells and pump it to reservoirs.

The boilers were fine. I didn't volunteer for the smelter.
