Default Bad news for lead.

They are reportedly the last lead smelter in the US. Thanks Zero!

Wheel Weights currently like everything is coming from China. They are being replaced by non-lead wheel weights. There are mega tons of scrap lead in the United States.
I really expect when the Democrats are out of office we will once more produce lead. This is just more anti-mining by the left wing "Greens".

Rarely do mines reopen, start up costs are too much unless the price really climes. Either is bad for shooters.
