Global Mining Review,

The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) will cooperate with the independent Board of Inquiry into the Grosvenor mine incident recently announced by the State Government.

QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said the Board of Inquiry into the incident, at the mine near Moranbah in central Queensland on 6 May 2020, would be conducted under the ‘Coal Mining Health and Safety Act 1999.’

“There is no higher priority than safety for QRC and our member companies,” Macfarlane said.

“No one should pre-empt the findings of the Inquiry or the Mines Inspectorate investigation already underway. Everyone should continue to pray for the five injured workers, their families and workmates and thank those first responders and hospital workers caring for the injured miners.”
