Can someone elaborate on this? A one sentence article shouldn't be considered an article.

It's always interesting to see proposed changes to mining laws and the implications that come with those.

Mining has depleted in skills and labor for years, a contract of seize was applied during a historical cave in, bombing and nuclear blast that over 80% were able to be brought back to life ad taken to Arkansas Colorado I think to a witness protection colony so nobody stares at their blast wounds.

Something came outa nodule. But since the ere the best they found more caves and mining an the industry was on freeze for them to accumulate mining liberties as long as they like to stablize life and medical in the lie of action when it occurs, So when they had a stable life with enough finances form the industry and medical restorations funds, then it would open back for public applications and new industries, as the old shut down and the owners refused any further activity on their property

Just reminded me, in 1977 I found a quarter with the date of the 1800? not exact on the year, but it was a centinal with the year 2002 when portals opened and men with guns came threw killing most all the Wisconsin locals, Stuck in new road tar out by Deforest, I happened upon it again, check the prints out on the other side.
