"start liquidating the reserve" - That is classic! Must be -452.07 °F! —Preceding unsigned comment added by EncycBrown (talkcontribs) 18:50, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

... nice joke juggling with the word liquification. Besides, I recommend, if not °Celsius, to use Kelvin, as Helium-4 boils at 4.2 K, and Helium-3 at 3.2 K. So easy! --Helium4 (talk) 07:17, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Volume of the reserve[edit]

The lead sentence states that the volume of the Reserve is over 1 \times 10^9 cu ft. The final paragraph states that over 1\times10^9 \it {m}^3 were extracted by 1995. Given the second value, shouldn't the first line be "over 1\times10^9 m^3"? --Nucleusboy (talk) 21:52, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

The Impact of Selling ... (2000) says on p43 that the storage amount in Bush Dome reservoir is 1 billion scm = 1\times10^9 \it {m}^3 as of 31.12.1996. (And 11% of that been privately owned.) This amount is taken into account of 6 billion scm classified measured reserves, which are part of the estimated resources of 16 billion scm (both again in the USA and per the same date 31.12.1996). --Helium4 (talk) 08:47, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Lemma starting with "Helium ..."[edit]

I recommend to establish the lemma "Helium - National Reserve" plus redirect up to here. That it can be found more easily. --Helium4 (talk) 09:09, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

reserve lifetime[edit]

I've heard the reserve is running out and that maycause market disruption.-- (talk) 16:32, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Reserve Location[edit]

I wanted to find the location of the Reserve. However, the Coordinates Link led to a Bad Request page. Decided to tidy this up. Doing a bit of preliminary research I found that it is at the junction of Route 66 and Helium Rd. How can I ever forget that address.

Aha, problem explained. It would appear that is a bit poorly today. Hope it gets sorted soon. But, I am guaranteed never to forget that address. (talk) 13:11, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
