Abstract

[Extract] Mount Isa region contains one of the world’s largest deposits of copper, lead, silver and zinc and has been mined since the 1920s. The presence of lead in the environment and its potential to elevate blood lead levels in those living and working in the Mount Isa community has been acknowledged for many years and has been an issue of concern in the Mount Isa community. In response to community concern, the Living with Lead Alliance (the “Alliance”) was established in 2007-2008 to develop and deliver ongoing public education campaign to increase awareness of living safely with lead in Mount Isa. The Mount Isa Living with Lead Alliance runs extensive and ongoing public education campaigns aiming to improve awareness on how residents live and work with both naturally-occurring and non-natural sources of lead.
