Gooday all,
Latest news on the Collinsville situation is the fact that Townsville have forwarded a number of specimens to Brisbane for further toxicological tests. A suspect has been identified but as yet no conclusive evidence exists, but I am advised that some video evidence exists and we are to await the results from Brisbane. The problem seems to be of human intervention, in an effort to protect a crop of Passionfruit from birds the indiscriminate spreading of poisonous baits has occured.
More on this later.

G'day John,
Has any water analysis at all been performed ?
from a surrounding area close to the mine ?
has any outflow areas been checked ?
Under the public health act ?
thank you for the latest news ?
despite how bad the tale.

Take Care,
From a very saddened,
John A. Gamblin
