Statement on Peabody’s North Goonyella mine
Please attribute the following comments to the Queensland Mines Inspectorate
The Queensland Mines Inspectorate continues to provide advice to Peabody’s North Goonyella mine personnel, to ensure that the level of risk to the safety and health of coal mine workers is at an acceptable level.
This extends to having inspectors onsite since the spontaneous combustion event in September last year and throughout the more recent process of reviewing the operator’s risk management activities ahead of mine re-entry.
The Mines Inspectorate team will also re-enter the mine as part of our ongoing investigation to gather further information into the spontaneous combustion event.
