"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

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 ... http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=9860&page=43 (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 ..."

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)
