“If you’re in Vancouver this is way out in the middle of nowhere, but way out in the middle of nowhere is our backyard.” Those are the words of Frederick Otilius Olsen Jr., the tribal president of a traditional Haida village on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.
Olsen, like many others who live in southeast Alaska, is worried about British Columbia's mining boom. There are 11 mines in various stages of approval and development in northwest B.C., set within the largely intact headwaters of the province's greatest wild salmon rivers.
The Red Chris mine, pictured here, began operation in 2014 and is the largest open-pit mine currently in operation in the transboundary area.

This is the tailings pond at the Red Chris mine in northwestern B.C. The wall of the dam is 105 metres high, about the height of a 35-storey building. Tailings are the byproducts left over from mining and include finely ground rock particles, chemicals and water. The rock particles and other chemicals sometimes undergo chemical reactions during storage that generate additional byproducts, such as acid, that can more easily leach into waterways.

B.C. and Alaska share some of the world's most productive salmon rivers. However, the region is also home to some of the largest untapped gold and copper reserves in the world. 103 DeSmog Canada readers chipped in to send celebrated photographer Garth Lenz to document the mining boom few have ever seen. This image shows the Red Chris mine, owned and operated by Imperial Metals, the same company responsible for the Mount Polley mine disaster in 2014. Check out the link in our bio for more of these incredible reader-funded images. 📸Garth Lenz
