Colorado-based Calico Resources plans to excavate $2 billion worth of gold outside of Vale in Eastern Oregon.

“I kind of scratch my head from time to time,” [Arden “Buck” Morrow] said, “because when you go out there you don’t see anything that just jumps out at you that says, ‘Oh, this may have gold in it.’"
