I forgot to tell you guys.....that just before the turn off to the NNM, and 20 miles west of Kayenta, Nip and I went under a covered conveyor belt that comes a couple miles out of the mtn to the south of Hwy 160. <table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/ob70Ga70CwAtSUBqEyU3g5YpeERW-zTLyKqMKUsJ5nA?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-D1ISAk_eKUU/Tg4tUzVEcpI/AAAAAAAANyQ/2q5jQ3hxX8k/s800/converyer%252520belt.jpg" height="194" width="259" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/p.ratfab/DropBox?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCNqO_P_EqfLYIA&feat=embedwebsite">Drop Box</a></td></tr></table> I've been under that thing at least a half dozen times like you have, and never really gave it much of a thought. Well, I've learned that that is a 17 mile long conveyor from the Black Mesa coal Mine started about mid century of the 1900s. It's the biggest coal deposit in the USA worth an estimate of a 100 billion bucks. The coal is railroaded to a power plants over around Page. Additionally there is a pipe line to run coal slury 275 miles to Laughlin NV for their power. Imagine the Navajo Indians having that kind of mineral resources going for them. I bet our gov boys didn't know that coal was there when our government gave them that reservation.
