Anglo American confirmed that longwall mining operations at Moranbah North Mine have safely restarted, in line with regulatory approvals. Production is expected to ramp up over coming weeks.
Mining development activities at Grosvenor Mine have also safely resumed this week, as part of the mine’s staged approach to restarting longwall mining operations later this year.
CEO of Anglo American’s Metallurgical Coal business, Tyler Mitchelson, said the milestones were an important step.
“I would like to thank our workforces at Moranbah North and Grosvenor mines for their patience and dedication in actioning a range of measures to ensure a safe return to mining activities.
“We will continue our ambitious program of work in the automation, remote operation and the use of data science areas to deliver on further step changes in safety improvement in underground mining.”
