Cyanide Beach by John Dougherty

September 15, 2013

Cyanide Beach is an explosive new documentary from award-winning investigative  journalist John Dougherty, that exposes the Canadian mining speculators  who are behind a proposal to open the massive Rosemont Copper mine just  outside Tucson, Arizona.

The revealing 24-minute film chronicles the deceptive business  tactics of top executives at Augusta Resource Corporation – owner of  Rosemont Copper – when they owned and operated an open-pit gold mine in  Sardinia Italy from 2003-07. You’ll see how they left behind a trail of  unpaid vendors, a misspent government loan, hidden investors, and a  toxic mess known to locals as “Cyanide Beach.”
