Under a plan approved by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Viceroy Gold Corp. of Las Vegas will operate a so-called "heap leach" mine in the Castle Mountains, a rugged range 100 miles east of Barstow.

The helicopter, buffeted by gusts, descends on its prey, precariously close to the rugged slopes of Old Dad Peak in the Eastern Mojave Desert. A man leans out the open hatch, bracing himself with one foot on a skid, and aims a strange sort of gun.

A 10-foot-square net explodes from a .308 blank cartridge and entangles the animal.
