Why do you think we're in Afghanistan. Beadyeyes
You have to wonder how anyone could look at the last 40 years of Afghanistan history and think it is a good idea to spend $3 billion to lease land there with plans of build a mining operation. Good luck with that...
To some people a chance to earn more money is reason enough to take a risk with other people's lives.

$3b is peanuts when your looking at $3Trillion in minerals. And you get free protection from the worlds largest and best equipped military. What's not to like.

If we didn't have a reason to stay before, wedo now. I bet there are plenty of rare Earth metals to mine as well. What are the chances that things improve for the Afghan people?
Even if things work out well, I doubt it will do much overall for the average Afghan. Maybe up to a couple thousand cheap labor jobs at most, in a population of 31.5 million or so (2018 estimate).
