Aluminium ore is mined in San Francisco, California.
The town of Alameda, California, is trying to clean up the toxic dump and has started to sell the ore.
The aluminum ore is from the Alaskan ore mine.
Alameda Mayor Mark Johnson said the town is trying in tandem with other nearby communities to sell it back to the Alameda County government, which owns the land.
Johnson said he thinks the ore is safe and the town would like to keep it in its original location.
“There’s a lot of people who are trying to help us out,” Johnson said.
The Alameda Mining Co., which was formerly called the Algoleta Mining Co. said it is looking for a buyer for the Alabaster Mine.
Alabasters officials said they do not plan to sell.
Algolets spokeswoman Megan Miller said that in its current condition, the Albayas mine is the worst source of aluminium ore in the U.S. “We have an obligation to do that,” Miller said.
Alsos ore is also used in the construction of a mine in San Juan, Puerto Rico, that is about to open.
Albayes officials said it has not sold any of its ore and has not been notified of any plans to do so.
The San Juan Mining Corp., which owns Algoles ore, said it will work with Alameda officials to determine the best way to sell its mineral.
The mine has an estimated $30 million price tag, Miller said, but is expected to generate more than $1 million for the city.
Almontas officials have not responded to requests for comment.
