Galena deposits (which may be what they are mining) are widely distributed in nature as well and we don't have huge swaths of the US devoid of life from lead, cadmium, and arsenic poisoning a result of those naturally occuring deposits.
I don't know who that company is or anything about them and have no interest in their products but I just thought it was important to mention that there may be more to the story than just, if you apply these products you're going to kill fish.
