Queensland Mining Tragedy: Worker Dies at central Saraji Coal Mine

A deadly catastrophe at the Saraji South coal mine in Queensland’s Bowen Basin on Monday struck at the core of Australia’s mining sector. A 27-year-old coal miner lost his life in the light vehicle tragedy. The second fatality at this location in the previous five years. The prior incident took place in 2018. The news stunned the town and left the miner’s friends, family, and coworkers in tremendous sorrow.

About the Queensland Mining Incident

At a coal mine in central Queensland, a worker has passed away.

At the BHP Mitsubishi Alliance coal mine near Dysart, the worker was involved in a vehicle-related accident that resulted in his fatal injuries.

BMA Asset President Adam Lancey said on Tuesday, “Our deepest sympathies are with the person’s family, friends, and colleagues at this difficult time.”

A notification has been sent to Resources Safety and Health Queensland.

Lancey stated, “We are collaborating closely with the Mines Inspectorate and pertinent authorities.”

The tragedy surprised and grieved the mining community as a whole, according to the Mining and Energy Union.

Operations Suspended at Mine

In the aftermath of the incident, the mine’s activities have been temporarily paused. Resources Safety and Health Queensland, the mining regulator for the state, is delving deeply into the tragic incident. The fourth-largest coal mine in Australia, Saraji, was established in 1974 and has produced up to 10 million tonnes of coal annually. But the activities of the mine are now clouded by this most recent tragedy.
