The Friday OT: BT; 13 Angels On My Broken Windowsill

Brian Transeau really hits the heights in this song. His range and depth of electronica, intersected by some beautifully melodic passages. BT at his best.

Dedicated to reader A and his wonderful partner, fue un gran gusto conocerlos. Youtube here.

Las Bambas breaking news: A truck has spilled a load of copper concentrate

Of all the mines to have this type of accident, it had to be Las Bambas, a contractor truck and along the contentious stretch of road (the "mining corridor") blocked by locals recently. So far the details of the accident this morning aren't with us, we know the truck overturned and spilled its load so that's presumably 30 metric tonnes of toxic dust laying around the place but we'll get to hear how bad it is later, for sure. Link to the Peru government enviro bureau OEFA's report here (Spanish language).

With both Barrick and Paulson drinking deeply on this deal, you really get the feeling MAX was "advised" to run one this cheaply.

My best guess on where Newmont (NEM) would be...

...if it hadn't bought Goldcorpse:

It'd be U$39 more or less, maybe even U$40. Currently U$35.20.
