    Just Remember that Dorothy listened to the omnipotent Oz and almost died in the attack of the Flying Monkey Squadron!  Put your money in the Metallurgical Engineering bucket to shoot down the monkeys, melt the wicked witch ( much like geos who have a cauldron stirred to cook up grand exploration schemes) and pull down the curtain of the mighty OZ (environmental and regulatory ...Nick Named Road Block to Production)!!!!

    Donate to the metallurgy, the problem solvers!  The greatest contributors to society!

    Marc,
    True the flying monkey squadron were the epitome of Dorthy not having a social license to operate. However, if you watch to the end of the film or read the subsequent books, you will see that environmental is what provided the path to achieve goals. Donate to the environmental division which supports the creation of the yellow brick road.

    Leslie, in the end Dorothy woke up and realized the dream was a nightmare wrought with false obstacles created by regulators and false deity!  After coming out of her coma, happiness and family are reunited doing hard work and creating value with solutions.  Metallurgists do the same for all the other disciplines every day.  The Metallurgists hold the dreams of all together regardless of the false promises and miscalculations of others!  Stay safe at home!

    PS. Flying monkeys guard my abode!

    Once again, who is this Dorothy character? Oh, I know, women in mining, like Leslie. Obviously superior to metallurgists, who are really nothing more than a hollow metal cylinder used to store food. Three cheers for the environmental women in mining.

    P.S. Notice how the metallurgists think women should stay at home? Note to Mark., your Dorothy character at least had shoes.

    Who is this Dorothy you keep referring to? I see the Wizard of Ounces (OZ) behind the curtain, and a road of gold flowing from the wizard's house. It looks like minors, geolojesters, young leaners, et. al, are following the river of gold seeking wisdom from the environmental wizards of the Oz. Wicked witch, so now we know what you think of women in mining. That's not nice.

    The Environmental Division which includes safety, governance, as well as bugs, bunnies, hobbits and more than one unicorn has risen to the challenge. With the posting by Bill Gleason on LinkedIn it is clear that the donations to the Great Debate are not limited to SME members.
