Thanks Roger!  An interesting article.
And Happy New Year to all!  
Guten Rutsch ins Jahr 2008! Franz -You should get out of Vienna and go visit
Upper Styria; Vienna is so drab this time of year! And the Eisenerzer Alps
surrounding Trofaiach are so beautiful!

Not only does helium occur with natural gas, it also occurs occasionally
associated with some CO2 deposits. The Model Dome CO2 field in Southern
Colorado had one well which produced over 9% Helium, the balance being
non-flammable gas (presumably CO2).  But that was a rare one.
