I am a much bigger environmentalist than just about anyone. However, I am also a large investor in Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. The managemnt of Dutch Gold is sincere in its desire not to harm the environment with an underground mine at Basin Gulch. They had initially planned for an open pit mine but the grade of the ore was too low except in several very rich gold blocks which could be better mined underground. Basin Guch just might be the richest gold and silver mine in the world. It sure wouldn't hurt the economy of Montana to mine it. Rumor is that the Terra satellite ASTER Report estimates up to 750 million gold ounces and 1.75 billion silver ounces at Basin Gulch. If that wouldn't be a new gold rush, I don't know what would?
