Some 10 million cubic meters of water and 4.5 million cubic meters of fine sand from the tailings pond of the Mount Polley copper and gold mine spilled over into lakes and creeks
The waste waters that are now out in the wild are likely to contain lead, arsenic, zinc, mercury and phosphorus
"The tailings pond is so full of chemicals. The water is green, fish floating.... It's sad,"

To the engineers who designed this tailings pond.. Go back to school. You are all a bunch of complete morons. To the people affected by this, you should hold this mining company 100% responsible for all your water needs. God damn BS
