Native America Calling: The Gold King Mine spill six years later
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Thursday, August 5, 2021

Toxic sludge from the Gold King Mine in Colorado poured into the Animas and San Juan rivers on August 5, 2015. It created an environmental disaster for hundreds of miles downstream, including parts of the Navajo Nation.

The bright orange plume from the original spill is gone, but legal fights and restoration projects continue. And heavy metals from the three million gallons of mining wastewater remain in waterways used by communities, farmers and ranchers.

Native America Calling will review the lasting effects these many years later.
