UPDATE 22/11/2012: Talvivaara spill goes on! New leakage found in safety dam!
Since the November 4, 2012 a cocktail of poisonous chemicals leaked from the Talvivaara mine in Eastern Finland to the surrounding rivers and lakes. An investigation of the Finnish Environment Institute found high levels of aluminium, cadmium, nickel, uranium and zinc in the released waste waters. In a big demonstration led by people from Eastern Finland on November 14, 2012 about 1,000 people demanded to close the mine. A petition with some 18,000 signatures was handed over to the Minister of Environment. The number of signatures is still increasing – as of November 18 about 20,000 people signed the petition.
