125,000 lethal doses of cyanide leaked in Japan

 

According to EIA prepared by Raub Australian Gold Mining SB (RAGM), the mining company has been using 1.1 tonne sodium cyanide per day to extract gold in Kg. Bukit Koman Raub, which is equivalent to 5.5 million lethal doses! Let's pray that accidents will not happen in Raub...

TOKYO (Feb 27, 2013): The equivalent of 125,000 lethal doses of cyanide leaked from a factory in Japan after a snowplough accident, a plant operator said Wednesday.

At least five tonnes of liquid waste containing sodium cyanide spewed out of a tank after it was hit by a snowplough at a plating factory run by Kurosaka Plating Co. in Hanamaki, northern Japan, on Tuesday, a company official said.

One litre of the toxic liquid waste, used to remove nickel plating from surfaces, is enough to kill 25 people, the official said.

The leak occurred when workers were trying to remove piles of snow from the site, which has seen severe winter weather over the last week, and damaged a valve on the tank in which the chemical was stored.

"Fortunately, snow absorbed most of the liquid and we have been able to collect the contaminated snow," the official said. "The leak has not reached a nearby river and we have not received any reports of impact on people."

Cyanide in various compounds has been used for suicides and murders, both real and fictional, over the last century.

Ian Fleming's fictional 00 agents were issued with cyanide capsules for use in the event of capture, although cinematic hero James Bond is said to have thrown his away.

(日本‧東京27日訊)日本一間工廠週二發生相當於12.5萬致死劑量的氰化物泄漏。廠方表示,事件是除雪意外造成。

該坐落日本北部花卷市的電鍍廠由Kurosaka電鍍公司經營。公司負責人說,一個水槽週二遭除雪機意外擊損,結果濺出至少5吨含氰化鈉的廢水。

他表示,1公升用於清除表面鍍鎳的有毒廢水,足以殺死25人。

事發時,多名工人正在該處清理上週嚴冬天氣留下的積雪,卻不小心損壞一個貯存這化學物的水槽活塞。

“幸好積雪吸收了大部份液體,我們得以收集這些沾污的雪。”負責人表示,“泄漏廢水未流到附近的河裡,而我們尚未接到民眾受影響的投報。”

在上世紀,無論在現實中或是電影情節里,氰化物一直被用於自殺及謀殺。二戰期間,納粹分子使用氰化氫在一些毒氣室進行集體試驗。
