British Columbia Mining - Mt Polley Disaster

The catastrophic breach of the tailings dam has seen huge concern in Canada - reported with videos at IKN

Jack Caldwell at I Think Mining (see blogroll) has this from correspondents.
The cost to other mining aspirants of delayed projects, additional tailings facility features, and so on is, in a sense, incalculable.   As one private correspondent said to me today: “This sets mining in Canada back for at least ten years.”  Another private correspondent said: “Nobody will permit a new mine in BC for at least ten years.”
