|Plot||Blue Gold expresses the Tsilhqotin peoples' unanimous rejection of Taseko Mines Ltd.'s proposal to drain Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) in order to stockpile mining waste. For the Tsilhqotin, the lake is sacred and its destruction unthinkable. Taseko's plan requires completely draining Fish Lake (which sits at the headwaters of the Fraser River) and filling it with waste rock. The company intends to create a reservoir to hold the 80,000 trout. In the place of gorgeous, fish-bearing lakes in a pristine sub-alpine ecosystem, Taseko will leave behind an estimated 700,000,000 tons of tailings and waste materials, including arsenic, mercury, lead, and other toxic metals. This will permanently scar the area, destroy habitat for major species and potentially contaminate the largest wild salmon run in North America.... search for Blue Gold: The Tsilhqot'in Fight for Teztan Biny on IMDb|
