FARA has an image of a toxic cloud released recently by YARA during its commissioning phase. The released occurred earlier this month.

We understand it might happen quarterly, as these releases of toxic material might occur with every start up of the plant.

This adds another huge threat to the Burrup Rock Art, as the higher acidity corrodes the patina that makes these unique petroglyphs still visible, after centuries of exposure to the elements.

Toxic could released May 2017 by YARA.
