Tipton visits old, leaky mines

Congressman: Tour helps generate cleanup ideas
Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, left, and Steve Fearn, a consultant with the Animas River Stakeholders Group, look over toxic drainage from the Red and Bonita Mine.
The Red and Bonita Mine and three other nearby mines are responsible for about 800 gallons of toxic waste every minute, says Peter Butler of the Animas River Stakeholders Group.
This passive-treatment system drains 30 to 40 gallons per minute of iron, zinc and other minerals from the Elk Tunnel Mine, says Peter Butler of the Animas River Stakeholders Group.
