RED DUST - NaNoWriMo Idea # 2


Katherine Ouellette and her brother David are part of a US Space Agency team prospecting for rare minerals and metals on Mars. Mars is in its first phase of exploration and colonization by the US, Chinese, Russians, and Koreans.  Ore samples taken by the US team have significant quantities of iron, aluminum, magnesium, chromium, and Titanium. Rarer elements such as nickel, copper, cobalt, lithium, tungsten, europium, molybdenum zinc, niobium, lanthanum also have been found in remote sites near the Chinese colony. When Kate and David discover traces of gold, the "rush" is on, except on Mars, pack-bots and sonic diggers have replaced mules and shovels. Kate soon learns claim jumping, robbery, and murderous outlaws are still a part of prospecting, even on Mars.
