A tragedy that no one wanted or expected ! Will this change anything or will governments continue to allow tailing ponds to victimize the people, our water sources, wildlife and and environment? These ponds are disasters just waiting to happen. (ticking time bombs)The Oil Tar Sand for instance , another government sponsored and promoted undertaking, with catastrophic consequences!
