#261733 Cooling down, Need a gun for detecting

Posted by weaver hillbille on 25 November 2015 - 08:29 PM

 Have you considered renting a few different types  at a range to get the feel of them,,,and investigated ammo costs?


 YOu could be Paul Bunyan or Barney Fife- as far as build- think "they" might like different guns?

#261623 Found this in New Jersey what is it!!!!!?????

 I am not and   I agree with  Senior Garimpo's hunch.


 VIsual interpretations, only,  will always be of limited value.


 FIrst  guess always takes precedent when it comes to safety.


 Without other information to go on, retreating to a bomb shelter is a healthy decision.

#261406 Beef Brisket - all smoked and delicious, ready to serve.

 I agree. It also doesn't hurt to befriend your local rancher. SOmetimes, believe it or not :200: , they "finnish" some of their own beef, and sock it away in a freezer.


 THen, periodically,  the "quality control dept" does sampling for palatability and continuation of long term feeding studies on multiple subjects. :old:  :old:  :brows:






 Will barter for beef ..that is all


The best thing we as consumers can do is complain, especially on the web..

#261187 EPA Screws up big time

Posted by weaver hillbille on 05 November 2015 - 08:58 AM

 NOw why didn't the EPA  contract to do this before... I believe the prespill leakage was only 500 GPM


 This plant handles 1200gpm and pulls out the sludge and metals/alkalizes the acid  waste water.



Alexco Environmental Group Completes Construction of Water Treatment Plant at Gold King Mine in Colorado

October 20, 2015 - Alexco Resource Corp. (NYSE MKT:AXU, TSX:AXR) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Alexco Environmental Group ("AEG"), under contract to the US Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA"), has completed the construction and initiated operation of a 1,200 gallon per minute ("gpm") interim water treatment facility at the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colorado. The abandoned Gold King Mine was the site of the spill on August 5, 2015, which inundated the Animas River in southern Colorado. 

AEG's contract to design, construct and automate an Interim Water Treatment Plant at the Gold King Mine is part of the Emergency Response and Removal Action being conducted by the EPA. AEG is the selected interim water treatment contractor for the EPA and acts under the supervision of Environmental Restoration, L.L.C. ("ER").

AEG's water treatment plant design was selected due to its proven capability to address water treatment residuals (sludge) during cold weather operations with a highly automated plant-wide control system, enabling 24-hour operation at low cost and high reliability. AEG completed the construction of the treatment system within a required three week period, and is now entering a four week testing period during which the plant will be optimized and further winterized in anticipation of the harsh conditions expected at 10,500 feet in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. 

The treatment plant has the flexibility to utilize diverse sources of low cost alkalinity (lime or kiln dust) and is currently operating under complete automation in the 600 gpm to 1,200 gpm range while achieving metals removal well in excess of the contractual standard of 85% total metals removal.

AEG's unique solids filtration and sludge handling experience will allow extended operation that avoids the need for sludge re-handling during winter operations by providing for simple on-site sludge storage and the opportunity for beneficial re-use. Separately, Alexco has developed and demonstrated the beneficial effects of water treatment sludge re-use at the Platoro mine and Globeville smelter treatment sites, which are also located in Colorado.

 I wouldn't be surprised if those inner tubes ( what they look like with straps around them) are filled with a closed cell foam- no flats.

 YOu would think if someone had the gumption to steal those bars, they'ld have the wherewithall to melt it down to something a little less traceable.  I assume that's some sort of serial number  on the bar...Long on gumption, short on smarts.

Gabbro is my guess.  


It's like basalt lava, except it  forms underground, like granite,


Pennsylvania, right?

#258797 More of a jurist question

Posted by weaver hillbille on 30 August 2015 - 08:40 AM

 Habar, It is  difficult to determine what you have.



 Other than rusty iron, determining  Earth or other world source is   difficult from just pictures.  There's always a chance they could be, but the condition is  too poor, as  shown/presented.


 If you can cut one in half, or grind a spot down on one side, to a non- corroded( non rusted) spot, that would help .


 Welcome to the board.


 I guess by using the  word,"jurist" you were looking for  vote/group decision.


 My first thought when I saw  "jurist"---someone wanted to talk about  being on a jury in  a court of law( Heard of Perry Mason?)



 WElcome to the board.
