Too cool. What is "tailings"?

well done brother. leave no moose behind. or something like that.


If you're likening to 'No Child Left Behind', that might mean the moose would get a participation trophy for being the one who got himself stuck out there.

Well, that's great news! Just the mere fact she was drinking is a good sign. Hopefully they gave her as much water as she'd drink. She was probably severely dehydrated after struggling in that mud. My worry would have been that she would have drank a lot of the silty water which can lead to problems. But if she was still drinking then that's a good sign.

Tailings are the rock, sand and byproduct of a mining operation. Essentially, it's what's left over after the ore has been removed.

I don't know how this particular mine works, but often times they'll mix the mined product with water to create a slurry to move everything to a different location where the ore is extracted and then the 'tailings' are cast off into tailing pits (sometimes called tailwater pits).

I was thinking along the exact same line. Silica doesn’t only gather in the lungs. It’s also a problem for the intestines and urinary track . ( MSDS )

I’ve never confirmed this. But I’ve heard stories that in long-term concrete workers.

It can cause intestinal rupture’s from accumulation due to it’s weight and caustic/abrasive make up.

If so I’m sorry everyone .

In my timezone we call that a solid effort.

Myself I would have said 'meh, survival of the fittest, circle of Life blah blah' but your compassion and dedication is admirable.

I'm sharing this story with friends and family, to show them there is still a glimmer of hope for mankind.

All it takes to change the world is seeing a heart so caring it humbles you...

You just set my day is on a different path brother. Just utterly awesome.

God bless you guys! Yesssssss! Nothing hurts my heart more than animals in distress. You guys should get a place in heaven for that act alone.

My favorite part of your post (besides the moose save!) is that you said you were told not to rescue the animal. Then your very next sentence: So we decided on a plan to rescue the moose. 😂😂😂

If I could, I would buy you moose-rescuers several rounds of drinks!

Damn you, and damn FCD! Now I'm worries that the moose is sick and is going to wander around dehydrated and sick and die. Buzzkills, you two. 😰😰😰😰

You and your crew ABSOLUTELY ROCK!!!!
Thank you for doing the right thing, when told not to, and proving them wrong by keeping yourselves safe too. Obviously you all know what your doing, much better than the pencil pusher higher ups.

Well the poor Moose would be dead were it not for you.

My youngest worked as a volunteer at a wildlife rescue and you would have to get an award for that kind of save. Over and above by risking your life in quicksand with a powerful animal.

😂😂 Alright you fixed it for me- thanks! Can't remember that SNL commercial without laughing.

Plus, our total badass OP did say that someone was keeping eyes on the moose. And she probably wouldn't have left if she was really sick, since she trusted her rescuers enough to drink from one's hands.

I’m home now.
Thank you everyone for the kind words.
I have a strong feeling that anyone of you would of done the same.

It’s just so damn humbling thinking it over that the moose trusted us enough to allow us to clean her off.
I’m really happy everything worked out the way it did.
That tailings pond is 30 meters deep. When I upload the video you will see the plywood planks begin sinking under The everyone’s weight.
I do not mean to be dramatic but if something went wrong...
I could of been filming not only the death of a moose, but a crew member as well.

For those concern about health effects on our moose friend.
We mine Palladium.
Unlike gold, our concentration process in our mill does not require any caustic additives.
You definitely do not want to make it part of your daily diet, but that girl will be fine.
