Dobbs’s Montanore goons may have shot a mine opponent to silence him.  We are lucky Libby has
little say in permitting.  Criminal mining execs have already ruined the town.  These people
never learn.

It sounds like this project is getting close to completing the approval process.  The community
of Libby deserves to have highpaying jobs, again.

Realitycheck, your message is kind of cryptic.  Where does it say the Montanore is for sale?

I always find it interesting that the commenters seem to present more factual information than
many articles do.  Journalism and reporting are but a shadow of their former selves.  Very

I find it interesting that Montanore has been put up for sale by Mr. Dobbs and he nor the
reporter make mention of it. Lack of this disclosure and failure to discuss with the community
the years and years of litigation facing the project makes me not trust this Music Man. A
responsible mine would be great for the area - but a responsible mine operator is needed.

Approval of the Montanore mine is long overdue.  The mine has been studied to death since the
1990s when it was approved the FIRST time, not to mention two new EISs….....with plenty of
public comment, Mr. Costello.  You just don’t like mining.  Special interest groups and the
environmental protection industry slow the approval process at the expense of the real public.
Our timberlands have been shut down in the face of Canadian dumping of lumber into the US.
Montana isn’t a park.  It’s a state with real people who call it home.  The mine is supposed to
be an underground mine, with no risk of acid, no cyanide, and no open pit for gosh sake.  C’mon.
Give us a break.  Approve the Montanore and move on.

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
