Description

In August of 1995, large cracks split open the earthen wall of the tailings pond in South America's largest open pit gold mine allowing 838 million gallons of cyanide-laced sludge to gush into the Omai River. This CovertAction Quarterly article investigates causes for the disaster and international community's attempt to downplay the crisis in order to save foreign corporate interests.
