QRC responds to Isaac Plains shutdown [video]

The Queensland Resources Council CEO Michael Roche has responded to Isaac Plains coal mine's closure announcement.

Yesterday the miner's joint venture owners, Vale and Sumitomo, annouced that it will be placing the mine into care and maintenance, cutting 300 jobs in the process.

The mine will stop production by the end of January next year.

Roche has posted a video responding to the sudden announcement, and discusses the state of QLD's coal industry.
