Words cannot quite convey what these photos show. Here are many more photos of the failed Bellavista Heap Leach Pad in Costa Rica.

Here is just one of many photos that show the heap leach pad in its “failure” state.

The following photos are fun: they show what appears to be regrading of the failed zone to make the situation look good. But it appears that there is still some cracking (movement) ongoing.

At this link you will find even more photos.

We have written a lot about this failure: at this link are many of our words on this topic. Thanks to those who have taken the time to keep us informed.
