On the positive side there is this 2-1/2 mile tall mountain that is completely covered with a tellurium layer 1-1/2 inches thick. 2600 tons or 5% of the known world reserve.

On the negative side, the top of this mountain is a mile deep and 300-miles from civilization.

Very true Fleng, but the companies that are interested in this kind of mining are big time and have lots of money, know how and resources.

Those nutty Chinese dumping 170 metric tons of tellurium on the spot market.

Bottom line:
"Canadian specialty metal producer 5N Plus Inc. announced at the minor metals trade association annual conference that they anticipated that tellurium was going to be oversupplied for the foreseeable future... "
