ABC Net reported that on one stretch of Papua New Guinea's coastline, the sea water turned bright red earlier this year. It was the result of at least 80,000 litres of toxic slurry spilling into a bay surrounding a processing plant for a nickel mine. Since then villagers have been afraid to fish and swim in the sea.

Now two scientific reports have been released with conflicting results about the impact of the mine and processing facility on the environment.
