The Pascua-Lama Effort to Move Glaciers

The desire for minerals like gold and silver is high. So high in fact that there are efforts going on in Chile to move glaciers so the precious minerals can be mined. The President of the AAG has stated "yeah right" when discussing the probability of there efforts being successful. The glaciers are just too huge is his reasoning.

The operation is being done by the Barrick Gold Corporation. Various environmental groups are attacking the effort for multiple reasons. The gold company released a rebuttal of some of the negative claims.

It should be interesting to see if man now has the power to move glaciers. As I have blogged before, those things are huge.
