 ATSDR - PHA - Leviathan Mine, Markleeville, Alpine County, California
Because Leviathan and Aspen creeks are natural discharge areas for surface waters and groundwater in the vicinity of Leviathan Mine, it appears unlikely that AMD from the mine would migrate far off site before discharging into the creeks.
According to the LRWQCB's 1975 Report Leviathan Mine (2), "Water from the ponding of seepage is being used on the roads." This suggests that contaminants at the mine could be present on the roads in the area and further strengthens the argument for further assessment.

Major difficulties of this view are that in Job chapter 41 Leviathan is described as breathing fire like a dragon, and that the crocodile does not seem to fit the descriptions of Leviathan given in other Bible passages, e.g.
Other theories, often cited by cryptozoology and creation science, is that Leviathan was an aquatic reptile, such as a Plesiosaurus, or a member of the Hadrosaur family - specifically the Parasaurolophus.
Essentially, the idea is that through a chemical reaction similar to the one that occurs in the Bombardier beetle, a Parasaurolphus combines elements located in different parts of its crest to create a combustible gas.

His Leviathan effectively developed a vocabulary for philosophy in the English language by using Anglicized versions of the technical terms employed by Greek and Latin authors.
(Leviathan II 18) That's why the minority who might prefer a different sovereign authority have no complaint, on Hobbes's view: even though they have no respect for this particular sovereign, they are still bound by their contract with fellow-subjects to be governed by a single authority.
(Leviathan II 21) Submission to the sovereign is absolutely decisive, except where it is silent or where it claims control over individual rights to life itself, which cannot be transferred to anyone else.
