Are you sure that is from a spill, or is it just spring runoff stirring up sediment from the baseline toxic mine drainage?

Let's hope it's just sediment stir up.

Search Results for “river” – The Denver Post

a search at the Denver Post didn't reveal anything that I could see regarding a new spill.

That looks like runoff. Where was the picture taken? Everything that drains from the Silverton or Ouray area looks like that. Right time of year that could be tributaries of Clear Creek or the Snake near Keystone. I've closed many mines, this is too early for mine work in the high country. Unless it's a "natural" breach of an internal system, I'm not buying it.
