Ken Norton, Hoopa Valley Tribal member and director for the Tribal Environmental Protection Agency, says that although the mine was shut down in 1964, chemicals are still flowing directly into the Trinity River.

“The discharge that comes out of the mine entrance has been evaluated for concentrations of selenium, cadmium, mercury, arsenic and high levels of acidity," Norton says.
