Years ago they found the Iron and the Copper. Then they lopped down the trees to smelt the ore. The wastewater poured into the river which turned to toxic slush flowing through the center of town. The valley filled with thick green toxic smog. Acid rain was common. With no trees the soil on the hills eroded.

Mines collapsed killing dozens.

They reopened and disaster stuck again.

They are trying to re-open again.

It’s Queenstown.
