The wall of the Red Chris tailings pond is a little less than 350 feet, or about the height of a 35-story building.

It is designed, however, to hold 305 million cubic meters of mine waste — seven times more than Mount Polley. Both mines are owned by Imperial Metals. (Courtesy Photo | Garth Lenz via Salmon State)
