Rio Tinto has apologised for losing a highly radioactive capsule that fell off a truck on a 1,400-kilometre stretch of desert highway in Western Australia, as the mining company sought to limit the damage from the incident. The miner and Australian authorities are scrambling to find the missing part from a sensor used in mining, which measures just 6mm by 8mm and was lost on its way from a site in the Pilbara region to a depot in the state capital of Perth. The silver capsule contains a small amount of caesium-137, and is dangerously radioactive.
