Back to the OP though. I'll assume that the credentials given are legit. However, I feel like the OP is trying to boast while claiming to know far-reaching matters based on a small piece of the puzzle. This is merely my opinion and I could very well be wrong. Unfortunately, that's the price you pay when trying to gauge an individual through a computer screen. However, the screen name "MolecularPhD" reminds me of some guy driving a fancy sports car with the vanity license plate "IMRICH"

The OP mentioned that he will post more info, depending on the responses he receives in this thread...You two squabbling over such BS will definitely not encourage the OP to share more info as he may see you have better things to discuss, such as typos, french fries, and personal details.
I for one, would like to hear more of what this gentleman has to say, so...Stay on topic people!!

The first of these to be built was in 1946 in the Northern Mountains of New Mexico by Bechtel Corp. near El Vado Lake, NM.
the third base was built in 1953 and run by Army Intelligence near Ft. Greely Alaska; to this day; I would say this is the most secure and established advanced technologies center that the US Government has to offer; having worked there myself on many occasions.

"Cinnabar, (cinnabarite, red mercury(II) sulfide (HgS), native vermilion), is the common ore of mercury. The name comes from κινναβαρι (kinnabari), a Greek word most likely applied by Theophrastus to several distinct substances. Other sources say the word comes from the Persian شنگرف shangarf (زینجیفرح zinjifrah, a word of uncertain origin). In Latin it was sometimes known as minium, meaning also "red lead", though both of these terms now refer uniquely to lead tetroxide."
"HgS adopts two structures, i.e. it is dimorphous. The more stable form is cinnabar, which has a structure akin to that for HgO: each Hg center has two short Hg-S bonds (2.36 Å), and four longer Hg---S contacts (3.10, 3.10, 3.30, 3.30 Å). The black form of HgS has the zinc blende structure."
