A small group of people have mourned the death of a young worker in an explosion at not-for-profit mining service company Tri Q Moranbah.

It’s believed the 22-year-old man was killed instantly Tuesday morning after welding in an outside area around gas bottles and diesel fumes.

According to the Daily Mercury the man was a new father and had recently moved to Moranbah for work.

The Daily Mercury reports it was the man’s second day on the job, and no other workers were injured in the incident.

A Queensland Workplace Health and Safety spokesperson told the Daily Mercury it was investigating the death.
