Mt Isa: Xstrata mining emissions causing lead poisoning in children

Mount Isa, today very much a ghost town rather than Australia's largest copper producer and major source of lead and zinc. The industrial dispute stretching into months of deadlock has caused a complete shutdown of underground mining, and the resultant economic repercussion are little short of disastrous. Every working day this huge plant lies idle costs Australia a loss in export income of 135,000. Obviously, millions of pounds are involved. Intervening, the Queensland Govenment issued emergency orders in Council, principally aimed at preventing Labour Council President, McMahon, and unofficials miner's leader, Pat Mackie from returning to Mount Isa, after Trade union-Fund Raising discussions in Sydney. This is a memorial to Campbell Miles, who first discovered mineral in the Mount Isa area in 1923. In those days isa was a cattle town and transit point for the wide-spread stations throughout the channel country. It was, and still is, a hard, rugged expanse which could perhaps best enjoy the typical description of a "thirsty brown land". The hill country on the outskirts of Mount Isa, where prospectors search for the bonanza, and which, when it was found, turned out to be a virtual mountain of copper. Active mining commenced in 1932, and the first signs of a vast industry began to show. Isolated from civilization, the attraction of big money brought miners to work, and then to stay, with their families to work, as the town continued its growth. Preparing for compulsory conferences aimed at settlement, representatives of unions involved. JACK DEVERAUX, HARRY PEEBLES and COL. EMERY. Another official involved, the President of the Queensland Trades and Labour Council JACK EGERTON seen here with PAT MACKIE.

Underground miners take families to depths of Mt Isa: . Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_PwdFVp32NtZPUqZfAM_jw?sub_confirmation=1 One of Australia’s mining giants has given its employees’ families a taste of what it is like to work 600 metres underground. Last week, Glencore opened the doors of its George Fisher lead, zinc and silver mine in north-west Queensland to more than 1000 workers’ family members. Joining the tour was Heather Dewar, a Mount Isa-based truck driver whose husband, Matt, works at the mine. “I haven’t been underground out here. The way I’ve heard about it, it’s quite small and dark,” Ms Dewar said, with a degree of understatement considering the mine reaches more than a half a kilometre underground. Matt Dewar said that showing his family how the mine worked was important. “You come here, you put in the long hours, it’s hot, it’s dusty. But at the end of the day you get to go home and see your family,” he said. #Underground, #miners, #take, #families, #depths, #MtIsa

Again another privileged opportunity to work with the young people working with One Spirit, One Land, Australia, at Noorla in Ingham. You must remember that generally speaking Indigenous people in Australia are very shy, humble. It is a HUGE challenge for the majority to speak in front of people - let alone into a microphone and be videoed. We are just beginning.... but we want to make these voices HEARD. From mouth - to ear... no media or "well meaning" representative in the middle - just them to YOU. Please spread the word... and help us... help the voices grow ! Proud of you Jamie - you are a perfectionist, and want to do more and improve but for a total impromptu - on your feet - immediate - you certainly have a way with language. Thank you.

Mount Isa Region The outback Queensland city of Mount Isa has been cut in two by floodwaters following heavy rainfall. Mount Isa (/ˈaɪzə/ eye-zə) is a city in the Gulf Country region of Queensland, Australia. It came into existence because of the vast mineral deposits found in the area. Mount Isa Mines (MIM) is one of the most productive single mines in world history, based on combined production of lead, silver, copper and zinc. With an estimated urban population of 21,821 as at June 2015, Mount Isa is the administrative, commercial and industrial centre for the state's vast north-western region. Although situated in an arid area, the artificial Lake Moondarra 19 kilometres (12 mi) north of the city on the Leichhardt River provides both drinking water and an area for watersports, birdwatching and recreation. Locals often refer to Mount Isa as "The Isa". Due to the lead production in the city, Mount Isa has one of the most intensive air quality monitoring systems in Australia. Concerns have been raised over childhood lead contamination and air pollution within the city.[7 More than 100mm has fallen over the city since Thursday t Isa Post Office opened on 1 August 1924. A location for the town's hospital was chosen in 1929, with a small building completed the following year. In 1931, a larger structure was moved to the site from the closed mining town of Kuridala. Heritage listings Mount Isa has a number of heritage-listed sites, including: Camooweal Street: Underground Hospital Camooweal Street: Tent House Mount Isa Mining District: Bower Bird Battery on Mount Isa Mine Lease: Mount Isa Mine Early Infrastructure Nettle Street: Casa Grande Governance Mount Isa at local level is part of the City of Mount Isa, at state level is part of the electoral district of Mount Isa in the Legislative Assembly of Queensland, and at federal level is part of the Division of Kennedy in the Australian House of Representatives. The mayor of Mount Isa, after the 2015 Local Government Elections, is Joyce Mccullough. The City of Mount Isa LGA jurisdiction, covering 43,188 km2 (17th largest in Queensland), is one of the largest in the world in terms of area and takes in the border town of Camooweal, 188 km (117 mi) to the north-west of Mount Isa and 12 km (7.5 mi) from the border of the Northern Territory. Local industry and business Mount Isa's industry is largely dependent on mining. Xstrata Plc operates the Mount Isa Mines lease adjacent to the city, which comprises the "Enterprise" underground copper mine, X41 underground copper mine, "Black Star Open Cut" silver-lead zinc mine, and metallurgical processing facilities. Silver-lead-zinc ore is also mined 20 km (12 mi) to the north at Hilton from the "George Fisher" underground mine, and the adjoining "Handlebar Hill" open cut, which is trucked back to Mount Isa for processing. Mount Isa is in the top two of the largest copper mining and smelting operations in the country. Copper and lead are smelted on site, with copper anodes and zinc concentrate being transported 900 km (560 mi) to the city and port of Townsville on the east coast. The lead ingots are transported to a refinery in Britain where the silver is extracted. The mine is the most significant landmark in the area, with the stack from the lead smelter (built 1978), standing 270 m tall, visible from all parts of the city and up to 40 km (25 mi) out. In 2008 a Queensland Health report found that more than 10% of children in Mount Isa had blood lead levels above World Health Organization recommendations. The mining operator Xstrata denied responsibility and stated that the town has naturally high levels of lead in the soil. However, aafternoon and one car was swept off a causeway. Senior Sergeant Jeff Magnus told ABC radio motorists should stay at home, saying "if it's flooded, forget". beautiful city, , nice photographs of landmarks, skyline, famous buildings, street life nice city, tourist , toursm, beautiful, pictures, beautiful photographs, landmarks, street life, life, street, streets, aerial, famous, parks, statues, people, nice people, friendly , friendly people, amazing, train station, city hall, hotel, vacation, trees, green, technology, pituresque, wonderful, impression, happy people, photo, photo video,Youtube Red,

It's a long way to travel without getting an idea of what the town is all about; Fletch catches up with local Brett from Mt Isa Mining Supplies who gives an insight, not on what's above ground but more about what's underground. Here are some interesting facts, they are mining 1,980 metres or nearly 2kms below ground, that's 26 levels down and counting. Underground there is 1,700 km of road and 1,000 km of railway. Mt Isa is recognised as one of the top 10 mining producers in the world with Copper, Silver, Lead and Zinc all sourced from this very remote site. Another fascinating aspect of the outback is the road trains, and Fletch stops road train driver for a chat. Steve tells us about his 2014 Kenworth 18 speed Road Ranger powered by a 600HP diesel engine, and all that power is needed to pull the 135-tonne payload in the 4 trailers that total 53 metres in length, with 18 axles and 70 tyres. Finally, Fletch finds a Rod Rat enthusiast Ricky and talks about his two 1930 Model A Coupe & Tudor that are in various stages of restoration. Mt Isa is full of surprises and well worth a stopover when you're next out that way.
