Pairing/Characters: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay

Summary: Rodney McKay has reopened a closed silver mine. An old assay report points to the mine as a source of naquadah, a mineral that is more powerful than uranium and a possible source of clean energy. He’ll have to work with the last man he wants to see -- Sheriff John Sheppard — to re-open the mine and search for the mineral. But with the mine becoming increasingly unstable, can they find what they are looking for—before it’s too late?
