Personally, I doubt it..

Fiscal cliff is more like a fiscal slope, as some one defined it..  For a project that is supposed to take 1 year + to build and provide steady and guaranteed supply to IMC for a generation or two, I don't think for a minute that these guys will be worred about the games that are being played in Congress..  And we have not even talked about China's grip on Tungsten in the equation..

Let's face it.. If the budget issues are not sorted out within some reason  and certain time frame, losers will be Americans and Congress so it is in their interest to make a deal..
