Canadian mineral industry cadmium discharges to surface and groundwater 2005-2014

This statistic shows the cadmium discharges to surface and groundwater in Canada from the mineral industry from 2005 to 2014. In 2014, the discharges of cadmium to groundwater and surface water from the mining/mineral industry in Canada amounted to 4.4 metric tons, an amount much higher than usual because of the Mount Polley dam breach that happened in British Columbia that year, which contributed 3.8 metric tons of the total cadmium discharges to water in that year.
