The cargo ship Lucas Oldendorff anchors in Auke Bay on Tuesday as it waits to pick up ore at the Green Creek Mine in Hawk Inlet.
And the Ships Flag is from Liberia and the ore goes to various smelters throughout the world on a regular basis.
So these huge mine operations come in dig up our state and send it around the world.
It would be cool if you could get a coin of just Greens Creek gold, but since no one wants a smelter in their back yard, we send it all around the world to other peoples back yards. They'd keep it local if they could.
whats your point. the income is staying in the states. unlike friggin subarus, toyotas, hondas, and all the other imported crap people buy.
I have a silver coin when it was kennicott greens creek : )- ......now its Heckla greens creek : (
Whats your problem with mining gbessler ? the metals from Greens Creek ( Au - gold ) ( Ag - Silver ) ( Pb - Lead ) and
( Zn - Zink ) are used worldwide and guess what the same metals are used ( by you ) probley forgot that before you wrote a comment thats ok your not alone, most people forget that our lives revolve around mining along with Timber
( Wood ) Fishing ( Food ) all 3 from this state ( Alaska ) so please next time you post just re-think where you are today.
