For a Fistful of Dollars.

On breaking the news that Gina Rinehart "offered a $50,000 bounty to a representative of the resources industry who best promotes mining in the face of 'far left or non-understanding media attacks' " (see here), the good folks of MacroBusiness humorously nominated one of their regular readers, well-known for his/her consistent, invariable and unconditional support of anything mining.

MacroBusiness, which excels in financial and business news, seem to have found a fool-proof way of attracting what looks like entirely new readers, for the comment thread numbers 102 (as at September 7, 08:05 am EST), which (to me and without having any hard data) seems to be a rather considerable number of comments.

And (surprise, surprise!) several of these new readers seem to be extremely well-disposed towards... the mining industry!

Rinehart's initiative is the latest in a series of innovative ideas recently advanced by local magnates. In July, her fellow mining gazillionaire Clive Palmer unveiled the blue-prints of his new Titanic II. (See here)
