Asarco Aldrich calls explosion "Mishap"
Is Asarco still a U.S. DOE high level radioactive waste disposal contractor? Did Asarco "clean-up its mess from encycle/elpaso/hayden/colorado to build a "duplicate" haz-waste disposal operation now out of Hayden? How on earth could they turn themselves away from that easy money that the U.S. DOJ and EPA described Asarco had made from its illegal incinerations of the 1990's? When those illegal wastes are burned they cause explosions (even in clean-ups, in el paso). The company burned the wastes so hot and fast through their new CONTOPs in 1992-3 that they had to rebuild it. Sound similar........Without the split samples the El Paso community asked for (never got) how will truth -- scientific truth EVER come out for the workers in Hayden... Corpus Christi, and, here?
"Asarco's Hayden smelter shut after mishap September 06, 2013 17:01 CDT HAYDEN, Ariz. (AP) -- A mishap at copper miner Asarco LLC's Hayden smelter damaged the plant and will shut down operations for about a week as repairs are made. Asarco vice president for environmental affairs Thomas Aldrich says molten metal broke out of the side walls of the flash furnace at about 4:30 a.m. Friday. The molten copper hit nearby water pipes, triggering a series of explosion-like concussions.
