Gold King Mine
The EPA begrudgingly revealed that it was performing “cleanup” on ten other mines while it was working on the Gold King Mine. The EPA has halted work on the mines, but documents seem to reveal that the EPA did not do its homework before engaging in the risky cleanup process that led to a massive environmental disaster.
The EPA is doing everything it can to avoid taking responsibility for the Gold King Mine disaster, where the EPA spilled millions of gallons of toxic waste water into the Animus river. So far, the Committee responsible for investigating the spill has faced EPA delays, withheld documents and even, it seems, doctored video.
