Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Re Cooya pipe for smoke (Let­ters, Oc­to­ber 17), I am an ad­vo­cate for the mill, how­ever the fer­tilis­ers used on su­gar cane con­tain trace lev­els of heavy met­als (lead, mer­cury and cad­mium) that are taken up by the plants which are used to fuel the elec­tri­cal gen­er­a­tion at the mill. No safe level for th­ese el­e­ments is proven.
