Magellan Not Welcome in Fremantle

Letter to the Minister for the Environment Re: Magellan lead carbonate exports

Lead carbonate is a dangerous product being transported through 22 suburbs of Perth by Magellan, who are known polluters. Our state regulators are asleep at the wheel just as they were during the Esperance scandal. This is a toxic combination of risk, and recent events show how this can unravel very quickly. Magellan has shown it cannot be trusted to transport lead carbonate and the government must act to put people’s health ahead of company profits here. A solution is available. The lead can be processed into a solid form in Wiluna, thereby value adding to the product in Australia. Safe exports could then be possible.
