Production at BMA’s Blackwater coal mine was suspended yesterday after a dump truck reversed through a safety barrier.

According to the Daily Mercury no-one was injured in the incident and the Queensland Government’s mines inspectorate is investigating the collision.

The Daily Mercury reports that a department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation spokesperson said all operations at the mine would be suspended until the inspector was satisfied.

The accident follows the death of a worker at the AngloGold Ashanti owned Sunrise Dam mine in Western Australia yesterday.
