Thrust of argument: John Holt writes 'The mining industry, always rapacious in its desires. Is now setting its sights on 2,500 acres in the Emigrant Peak area of Montana's Paradise Valley, a spectacular place with rugged mountains, thick forests and cold, crystalline streams that drift down on the Yellowstone River. As usual, gold is the main quarry in this effort. Lucky Minerals Inc. (at least they didn't have the temerity to name themselves 'Life Is Good Mineral Extraction Consortium', a Surrey, British Columbia, mineral exploration company, has applied for two separate exploration permits in the area, one with the Custer Gallatin National Forest and one on private land with the Montana Department of Environmental Quality.

Emigrant Peak is the backdrop for the famous Chico Hot Springs Resort, just north of Yellowstone National Park, and its owner and general manager Colin Davis isn't happy about the prospect. 'It all leads to only one possibility,' Davis said, 'which is a massive, horrific mine back there.''.
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: The purpose of mining gold is primarily the production of a financial sector commodity.

Removal of resistance: Perhaps it is time for crypto currency to take over and beat this problem. Unification: The use of energy by crypto currency is a far less serious flaw than the mining involved in gold, it seems to me.
