MEXICO, URES : View of the waters of the Sonora River where five days ago a copper mine leaked 40 thousand cubic meters of sulfuric acid seriously polluting it, in the Ures community, Sonora state,Mexico on August 12, 2014. The chemical caused an orange stain along a 60-kilometer (37-mile) stretch of the river bordered by the towns of Arizpe, Banamichi, Vabiacora, Aconchi, Cananea, Ures and Hermosillo.

Sulfuric acid comes through town on a train daily on its way to the 2nd largest copper mine in the world just 3 miles north of me.
