the CBC is reporting the scrapping of the MV Miner is running late and over budget due to higher quantities of pollutants being found. it was estimated there were 5 tons of Asbestos aboard, however crews have removed more the 30tons of the material.
also discovered was 18000 liters of fuel in a tank. After the Vessel grounded, a salvage company was retained to remove all fuel’s and oils. this discovery leads to the possibility of a tank that was added for the trip as a means to re-fuel the tug on route.
if this is the case, perhaps the towing company can be sued to recover cleanup costs.
