This is a calcium plant that Troy, my roommate who is a radio reporter with CKBA Fox News in Athabasca stumbled upon when we were in calling lake.
It was surreal in that it was filthy. Something out of a post-apocalyptic movie.
This is what we thought was a tailing pond. When I took the picture a guy came out and was a little worried about what we were doing but thankfully we had an excuse.
What he told us was that it was a calcium plant. Essentially it was a pond that drilled deep down and that was all dirty salt water that was... i guess distilled or whatever for the elements in it. sure why not.
