New evidence backs claim of secret mercury dump, ex-worker says


January 16, 2017

A former worker at the pulp and paper mill in Dryden, Ont., says he feels vindicated by new research released on Friday by the environmental group Earthroots.

Kas Glowacki went public last June saying that in 1972 he helped bury more than 50 barrels of mercury in a pit near the mill, upstream from Grassy Narrows First Nation.

His claims appeared to support research by leading mercury experts released in May, showing a continuing source of mercury contamination in the Wabigoon River system.
