    It took me a little too long to figure out that they were talking about a literal gold mine. I think it's time for more coffee.

    That breaks down to about $10,000 US per person per year. That is not a lot of money to compensate for having your idealistic mountain valley community you call home disrupted and potentially ravaged.

    Seems like I saw 10 years somewhere as the projected life of the project.
