DRYDEN, ON, Feb. 7, 2018 (TbNewsWatch) -Ontario's environment ministry says it will continue work this spring to evaluate the extent of mercury contamination in soil around the Dryden paper mill.

A ministry spokesperson says the current work focuses on an area of the mill property called the Gordon Road site.

That's where soil samples taken at two locations last fall showed "elevated total mercury concentrations," according to an email to tbnewswatch.com by spokesperson Gary Wheeler.
