CRIANLARICH, UNITED KINGDOM - JULY 22:  Chris Sangster, chief executive of Scotgold inspects the Tyndrum gold mine on July 22, 2008 in Tyndrum Scotland. The company is eagerly awaiting planning permission to start extracting an estimated 70 million GBP worth of gold from the hills. With the current weakness in the economy, combined with fears of inflation pushing the price of gold to record heights, it makes potential mining in Scotland economically viable.
