ANCHORAGE - A 2-acre area at the Fort Knox Gold Mine near Fairbanks is being dug up to remove pollution from a spill of water contaminated with a low concentration of cyanide.
The Department of Environmental Conservation told KTUU that most of the 300,000-gallon spill Wednesday was contained within a building. But, about 35,000 gallons flowed onto a gravel road and parking lot within the site.
