The article presents an interview with Tony Pynsent, a Queensland-based entrepreneur who recently launched Cooee Products. The company's main product is DustBloc, a liquid dust suppressant invented by Pynsent. BHP Billiton's endorsement of DustBloc is a big factor to the success of DustBloc because BHP accounts for Cooee's business and word of mouth advertising is very important in the mining industry.
