Memo To: Bob Date: 5/6/2009 Re: Mount Hope Project After going over the cost analysis for our Splash Springs project I have come to the conclusion that the Mount Hope Project will require $18,000,000 in funds.

In order to give Claire an insight into the technical and financial feasibility I would need to have several different pieces of information at my disposal. For example, research into the demographics of the area would be needed.

This may add an expense to the construction as the machinery may have to be moved solely at night. These are just a few of my questions and points thus far into the research portion of the project. Attached: Cost analysis and comparison spreadsheet for the two projects. If you have any concerns I can be contacted at 1...
