More revelations today, this time from the Environment Minister David Parker that New Zealand Aluminium Smelters has not been open about the state of their site near Bluff. The aluminium smelter at Bluff has stockpiled more than 100,000 tonnes of cyanide-laced hazardous waste less than 100 metres from a fast-eroding Southland beach.
