Massive Spill at Canadian Gold Mine
"But what makes all this particularly depressing is that Imperial Metals is one of the class acts of Canadian mining, and the mine was built by highly skilled Canadian miners to modern technical standards in our own backyard. And the tailings were flowing uncontrolled through the breach on a beautiful sunny summer day, not after some catastrophic tsunami or once-a-century storm or flood."
