There are a lot of maybes in this world, but as president and CEO of Midas Gold Idaho, I can give you a few guarantees.

I can guarantee that without the Stibnite Gold Project, a branch of the Salmon River will continue to flow into an abandoned mine pit, preventing salmon migration; millions of tons of uncontained legacy spent ore and tailings will remain a likely source of water contamination; and Stibnite will remain an unreclaimed, abandoned mine site.

Before our project can proceed, I can guarantee that restoration of existing conditions will be included in our permits and that we will be required to provide funds to remediate impacts from our operations to ensure the site is finally reclaimed and restored.

A Massachusetts federal court held its first hearing last week for a 2-year-old personal injury case in which a Glock pistol allegedly blew up in a hunter’s hands.

The plaintiff, Rodney MacDonald, of Chester, filed the case against the gun maker and three other defendants, but in their answers to his complaint, they all lobbed allegations against each other.

The lawsuit brings claims against various participants in the supply chain, including Georgia-based Glock; retailer Cabela’s, of Sidney, Nebraska; ammo maker Buffalo Bore, of Salmon, Idaho; and distributor Guns and Gear, of Agawam, Massachusetts.

If nearly 500,000 deposits of $1,000 each on the new Tesla Model 3 indicate bridled demand, the electric cars have a sure future.

Tesla announced it will source cobalt only in North America, but Canada and the United States produce an estimated 4 percent of the world supply. Formation Metals, a Canadian mining firm, changed its name to eCobalt Solutions in 2016 and aims to extract cobalt ore from a hefty deposit near Salmon, Idaho. “The Idaho Cobalt Project remains the sole, near term, environmentally permitted, primary cobalt deposit in the United States, the world’s largest single consumer of cobalt,” said Paul Farquharson, president and CEO of eCobalt.
