When did coal mining start in the Minto, New Brunswick area? What environmental, social and financial impacts has it had over the years? How has the water quality of fresh water runoff from the mine tailing ponds changed over time? Why are the ponds that beautiful aquamarine colour? What are the future plans for ecosystem improvement in the mine tailings areas?
