drdesert: That's an eyesore. Even people in favor of the proposed project would have to admit that much. Telescope Peak provides a uniquely undisturbed view for those who climb it and something like that would ruin the view. It's hard to imagine that any amount of lithium would be worth something as ugly as that!

Last I heard all roads up to the trailhead to Telescope Peak are still closed and so it's not likely many people will be making it up to the peak for awhile. So what difference does it make? Besides the hike is way too hard for most people anyways! Especially us old-timers!

You can drive up to the kilns from either Emigrant or Wildrose, but not beyond that point due to snow and ice.

Land purchases add 160-acres to Death Valley National Park
Death Valley NP just keeps growing and growing. These were purchases from private land owners made by a conservation group. They include land in the Owlshead Mtns, in the Panamint Range, near Panamint Springs, and in Saline Valley.
In the Panamint Mountains, a 55-acre former gold mine prospect at 8,230 feet on Porter Peak was patented by the Haskell Mining Company in 1919. Historic artifacts such as glass and pottery shards, a concrete and steel monument, and mine shafts provide a glimpse into mining activities in the early 20th century.
