A retention dam breaks in a gold and silver mine in Mexico’s northern state of Sinaloa, causing nearly 11,000 tons of toxic material to pollute nearby rivers.

Roughly 10,800 tons of toxic material from the “Two Gentlemen” mine in the northern Mexican state of Sinaloa leaked into the Chupaderos stream, which flows into the Baluarte River in the town of Concordia, local authorities reported Friday.

State and federal authorities have taken emergency measures to prevent wastes pollutants from contaminating ground water and affecting inhabitants of the region.

According to officials a retention dam was breached at the mine which primarily extracts gold and silver.

The Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa), said the discharge of the the toxic materials occurred Thursday morning due to a «collapse» at the mine’s dam, however the agency was not notified until three hours later. The composition of the toxic materials has yet to be disclosed.

In a statement, the agency explained that the chemical material has thus far covered a distance of 900 meters down the slope of the outside of the dam, which is located just north of the Sinaloan capital Culiacan, some 900 miles north of Mexico City.

Profepa also noted that it will open an administrative proceeding so as to plan for eventual remediation of the site which will be authorized by the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat).

On August 8, 40 thousand cubic meters of sulfuric acid spilled from the Cananea mine in Sonora, Mexico, polluting the Bacanuchi and Sonora rivers and affecting the water supply of more than 22,000 people. SEMARNAT’s director, Juan Jose Guerra Abud, called the spill the country’s “worst industrial mining disaster”.

That spill caused public outrage and protest, with organizations and politicians calling for hard sanctions and costs be paid by mining giant Grupo Mexico.

In that spill organization such as Greenpeace warned that remediation will not fully clean up the spill and heavy metals will remain, causing prolonged and possibly permanent envrionemtnal damage and serious health risks to neighboring populations.

Κατάρρευση φράγματος αποβλήτων στο Μεξικό – Τέταρτο ατύχημα σε δύο μήνες!

Έχουμε χάσει πλέον το λογαριασμό με τα τοξικά ατυχήματα στο Μεξικό. Εδώ το πρώτο στις 8/8/2014, εδώ το δεύτερο στις 20/9/2014 και ενδιάμεσα, στις 14/8/2014, είχε σημειωθεί και μια διαρροή κυανίου σε μεταλλείο χρυσού Καναδικής εταιρείας. Άρα μιλάμε για το τέταρτο ατύχημα.

Mε την ευκαιρία, δείτε το βίντεο που ακολουθεί. Στις 16 Ιανουαρίου 2011, 9.000 άνθρωποι στο Μεξικό διαδήλωσαν ότι «Η ΖΩΗ ΑΞΙΖΕΙ ΠΕΡΙΣΣΟΤΕΡΟ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΧΡΥΣΟ» και σχημάτισαν ένα μεγάλο SOS στην παραλία του Los Cabos. Κάτι ήξεραν.

Η διάρρηξη ενός φράγματος σε μεταλλείο χρυσού και αργύρου στη  βόρεια πολιτεία Σιναλόα του Μεξικού, την Πέμπτη 16/10, προκάλεσε τη ρύπανση των κοντινών ποταμιών από περίπου 11.000 τόνους τοξικών υλικών.

Οι κρατικές και ομοσπονδιακές αρχές έλαβαν μέτρα έκτακτης ανάγκης ώστε να προληφθεί η διαρροή αποβλήτων στα υπόγεια ύδατα που θα επηρεάσει κατοίκους της περιοχής.

Σύμφωνα με αξιωματούχους συνέβη «κατάρρευση» του φράγματος συγκράτησης στο μεταλλείο “Two Gentlemen”που εξορύσσει κυρίως χρυσό και ασήμι, αλλά οι αρχές δεν ενημερώθηκαν παρά τρεις ώρες αργότερα. Η σύσταση του τοξικού δεν έχει ακόμα εξακριβωθεί.

Autoritățile locale au raportat vineri cedarea unui baraj de retenție, într-o mină de aur și de argint, din nordul unui stat mexican – Sinaloa, cauzând o poluare a râurile din apropiere cu aproape 11.000 de tone de materiale toxice.
Aproximativ 10.800 de tone de materiale toxice de la mina “Two Gentlemen” din statul mexican Sinaloa de nord s-au scurs în Chupaderos, care se varsă în râul Baluarte în orașul Concordia, .
Autoritățile de stat și federale au luat măsuri de urgență pentru a preveni contaminarea apelor subterane si afectarea locuitorilor din regiune cu deseuri poluante.
Potrivit oficialilor, o bresa s-a deschis într-un baraj de retentie, la o mina care extrăgea initial aur și argint.
Procurorul Federal pentru Protecția Mediului (Profepa) a declarat că deversarea de materiale toxice a avut loc joi dimineață, din cauza unui «colaps» la barajul minei; cu toate acestea, agenția nu a fost notificată decât trei ore mai târziu. Compoziția materialelor toxice nu a fost încă dezvăluită.
Într-o declarație, agenția a explicat că materialul chimic a acoperit până acum o distanță de 900 de metri în jos pe panta de partea exterioară a barajului, care este situat la nord de capitala Sinaloan Culiacan, aproximativ la o distantă de 900 de mile nord de Mexico City.
Profepa a menționat de asemenea că va deschide o procedură administrativă pentru a planifica eventuala remediere a sitului, care va fi autorizată de către Ministerul Ecologiei și Resurselor Naturale (SEMARNAT).
La 8 august, 40 de mii de metri cubi de acid sulfuric s-au vărsat de la mina Cananea în Sonora, Mexic, poluând râurile Bacanuchi și Sonora și afectând alimentarea cu apă a mai mult de 22.000 de persoane. Directorul SEMARNAT lui, Juan Jose Guerra Abud, a denumit scurgerea «cel mai mare dezastru industrial minier» al țării.
Această deversare a provocat indignare publică și protest, organizațiile și politicienii au cerut aplicarea de sancțiuni dure și costurile să fie plătite de compania miniera gigant, de asemenea, Grupo Mexico.
Organizații cum ar fi Greenpeace, au avertizat că remedierea nu va curăța pe deplin deversarea și metalele grele vor rămâne, provocând daune prelungite și posibil permanente asupra mediului înconjurător si riscuri grave asupra sănătății populației învecinate.
