Dear Elizabeth,

I am most thankful for sending me Ingo's contacts. I will send him an e-mail. I am glad to note that we have similar interests in environmental protection. I am also Vice President of an NGO registered with the Zambian Government called Environmental Protection & Awareness Society (EPAS).

ANSWER: 26 Mar 2007

Dear Peter,

By now you would have received the email from Andrew Somers of JBS Group - the importers of XRFs in Australia - about XRFs so I hope that you have been able to communicate fruitfully with Ingo about the availability of XRFs in Africa:

SOUTHERN AFRICA United Scientific (Pty) Ltd

Fax: +27-21 592 5048

I received a phonecall from Mike Van Alphen in Australia after I asked him by email about the Lead Care range of products. Mike told me that he is no longer working on lead but that the manufacturer of Lead Care products is ESA and that they make other products which may meet your needs, so you would be best to contact them directly:

ESA Company headquarters

22 Alpha Road

Chelmsford, MA 01824 USA

978.250.7000 Phone

978.250.7090 Fax

I have also sent you an invitation to join our LeadWorkers egroup so that you can put any questions you have about working with lead, to a group of people who already do. Please let me know if you have any problems or need to know anything else about lead. Good luck with the project.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O’Brien
