Program Title: Mysterious noise sparks discovery of crypto power plant in Alberta
Description: It all started when residents of an affluent community near Edmonton heard a disruptive noise from what they thought was a defunct natural gas facility nearby. That led to claims of sleepless nights, complaints and eventually, a months-long investigation that uncovered a power plant secretly set up to mine cryptocurrency on a dormant gas well.

Today on Front Burner, CBC Calgary's Sarah Rieger brings us that story, and what it says about the potential growth and challenges of cryptocurrency mining in the province.
