Mount Polley Mine tailings pond breach: helicopter flyover

The Cariboo Regional District has released troubling video of what locals are already calling an environmental disaster following the release of five million cubic metres of effluent from a tailings pond at the Mount Polley gold and copper mine near Likely, B.C., on Monday.
This YouTube video released by the CRD provides a sobering view of the extent of the damage.
Possible causes of the release are still under investigation.
