Lori moves up most Evil Woman List

Three months+ of grossly unbelievable illegal management and besides getting drained stupid whats been happening to the Co? Well insiders have peeled off what remains of their paper and for all intents and purposes the deal is finished with no redemption possible.


After a two-week delay, Gilby Len Hastman and Darcy Kim Hastman (the concerned shareholders) have now received the scrutineer report of St. Elias Mines Ltd. for the annual general and special meeting of shareholders of the company held on Dec. 27, 2012 (the AGM). To date, the company has not publicly announced these results.

The Report also confirms that, of the five Management nominees for directors, Lori McClenahan and Tina Whyte received, respectively, the fewest and second fewest votes cast, including by shareholders who completed white proxies for use at the AGM.

Belle Gunness was one of America’s most degenerate and productive female serial killers.

Significantly, the report discloses that management of the company (management) received approximately 6,671,436 votes at the AGM, which is in stark contrast to the 64,649,933 shares represented by the valid green proxies received by the concerned shareholders and delivered to the company for use at the AGM (please see the news release of the concerned shareholders dated Jan. 2, 2013). Therefore, the green proxies accounted for approximately 91 per cent of the total votes cast at the AGM in favour of electing the dissident nominees as directors of the company. This was a remarkable result.


Irma Grese or the “Bitch of Belsen”
There can't be much juice left in the SLI.v lemon at this rate and the regulator better find a reason to DO something damn soon else there won't be anything left to fight over.

As far as stretching the ethical bounds of rational thought to the limits and far, far beyond, well damn Lori take a bow. Without question you have the biggest set of manstones this observer has EVER seen.

Joshua Bond busted for selling fake gold

"BARRIE, Ont. — Not all that glitters is gold. Especially not the stuff coming from the home of Joshua Bond in Barrie, police said Wednesday, after charging the 33-year-old with two counts of fraud for allegedly selling fake gold online.

Police seized equipment from Bond’s home Tuesday night, but they still aren’t sure if the phony gold bars and krugerrands (South African coins) were made there or off-site. They don’t even know what the actual material is yet, except it’s not gold.

Forged documents were used to authenticate the gold and also some silver pieces to buyers, police said. One buyer purchased $10,800 of the junk metal, police said. Bond was selling the fools gold through a company he created called The Bullion Broker. He was charging $1,500 an ounce — just below the market price of $1,600 an ounce. “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is,” Higgins said.

The Patiala Necklace

De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited produced a 428 carat light yellow octahedral diamond in March 1888. With a finished weight of 234.65 carats, the cushion cut "De Beers" is the seventh largest faceted diamond in the world.

The Maharaja, Bhupinder Singh, of Patiala in the Punjab region of India, bought the gemstone in 1889.

In 1925, the Maharaja commissioned Cartier to set the De Beers diamond as the centerpiece of a ceremonial necklace that became known as the Patiala Necklace. In its original form, the necklace was 962 carats contained in 2,930 diamonds and other precious stones. It was completed in 1928 and is one of the most spectactular and expensive pieces of jewellery ever made.

The last sighting of the complete necklace was in 1946 when it was worn by the son of Maharaja Bhupinder Singh, Maharaja Yadavinder Singh. Fifty two years later the necklace was discovered in a second-hand jewellery shop in London by a Cartier representative. The De Beers diamond and the other large stones were gone. The remnants of the Patiala Necklace was bought by Cartier. It took four years to restore the necklace to it's former glory.

On May 6th, 1982 the 'De Beers' came up for auction at Sotheby's in Geneva. The top bid of $3.16 million remained below the undisclosed reserve price.

5 most deadly Rocks and Minerals

Arsenopyrite is arsenic iron sulfide, which is the same type of mineral as pyrite (fool’s gold, iron sulfide), but with a heavy addition of arsenic. If one attempts to heat or in any way alter the mineral, a strong garlic odor of arsenic will be produced as lethally toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic vapors are released.
Torbernite prism shaped green crystals form as secondary deposits in granitic rocks, and are composed of uranium. It is formed through a complex reaction between phosphorous, copper, water and uranium. Radon gas is slowly released from uranium decay.
Stibnite is antimony sulfide. The shining metallic crystals of this unstable compound were once fashioned into magnificent eating utensils. Stibnite’s antimony laced crystals killed a number of people before it became known that use of the mineral was causing food poisoning of the worst kind.
Orpiment crystals are found growing below the surface in mineral formations, often near hydrothermal vents. The crystals release carcinogenic, neurotoxic arsenic powder. Orpiment is known to give off a strong garlic smell due to its arsenic content, and may crumble into dangerous powder when exposed to light. The mineral was used as a primary component of ochre paint, and likely poisoned many of the artists who used it.
Cinnabar (mercury sulfide) is the single most toxic mineral to handle on Earth.

The name of the crystal means dragons blood, and it is the main ore of mercury. Forming near volcanos and sulfur deposits, the bright red crystals may release pure mercury if disturbed or heated, causing tremors, loss of sensation and death.

Going for gold in Mozambique

Manica, Mozambique - They are washing the soil, day and night, hoping to reveal gold.

80 percent of gold prospectors arrive illegally from the neighbouring country of Zimbabwe. The miners claw at the earth between 15 and 20 metres beneath the surface, in an extensive tunnel system.

The diggers work on their own account, and after selling the gold they must give half of the money to the owner of the land.

Workers earn 15 meticals (about $0.50) per sack they deliver to the river. On average, they deliver 48 to 50 sacks a day.


Largest Man-Made holes on earth

The Bingham Canyon Mine is a copper mine in the Oquirrh mountains, Utah. The mine is 0.75 mile (1.2 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and is the largest manmade excavation on earth.
The Mirny Diamond Mine is 525m deep and has a diameter of 1200m. It was the first, and one of the largest, diamond pipes in the USSR. It is now abandoned. While it was still operational, it would take two hours for trucks to drive from the top to the bottom of the mine.
The Udachnaya Pipe is a diamond mine in Russia. In ceased open pit operations in 2010 in favor of underground mining. The mine was discovered in 1955 and is over 600 meters deep.
The Kimberley Diamond Mine holds the disputed title of being the largest hand-dug hole in the world. From 1866 to 1914, 50,000 miners dug the hole with picks and shovels, yielding 2,722 kg of diamonds.

World's top copper mines

The Escondida copper-gold-silver mine is located in the northern Atacama Desert of Chile, 3,050m above sea level. The mine is a joint venture between BHP-Billiton (57.5%), Rio Tinto (30%), a Japanese consortium (10%) and the IFC (2.5%).
It came on-stream in late 1990 and its capacity is 230,000t/d.
Chuquicamata (Codelco Norte) is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of Santiago. The mine is owned and operated by Codelco. At 850 meters (2,790ft) its the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA).
The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia and has 19,500 employees. It is majority owned through a subsidiary by Freeport-McMoRan.
The Collahuasi mine in Chile was commissioned in April 1999 at a cost of US$1.76bn. The mine is 44%-owned by Xstrata plc in joint venture with Anglo American (44%) and a Japanese consortium (12%). It has a long-term capacity of 500,000t/yr of copper.
The El Teniente mine in Chile is an underground copper mine located 2,300 m (7,500 ft) above sea level in the Andes.

Mining at El Teniente stared as early as 1819. It is "the world's biggest underground copper mine", and is the largest of Codelco's operations.

The Norilsk-Talnakh deposits in Russia are the largest nickel-copper-palladium deposits in the world. The Norilsk deposits were discovered during the 1920s, with nickel production starting during the Second World War. Underground mining began in the 1950s.
Reserve estimates show proven and probable ore reserves totalling 478.7Mt, containing 6.27Mt of nickel, 9.37Mt of copper, 62.2Moz of palladium and 16Moz of platinum. Reserves are reportedly sufficient to support 50 years' output at current rates.

Copper is believed to have been used first by Neolithic man as a substitute for stone around 8000 B.C. The science of metallurgy emerged when copper was heated and mold-casted into shapes in Egypt around 4000 B.C. In 3500 B.C., fire and charcoal were used to smelt ores, and copper was alloyed with tin to create bronze, giving rise to the Bronze Age.

The Romans obtained their copper from Cyprus. It was called aes Cyprium, which means "metal of Cyprus." This was shortened to cyprium. Later, cyprium was changed to coprum, and eventually became known in English as copper.
