Ancient Buddhist town vs. $100 billion in copper underneath contracted to the Chinese. The only way to access the metal is the level the entire mountain. Circle of Life. The original town was built on the mountain as a thriving mint for copper coins. It exists because of the copper. Soon it will be destroyed for the copper.
