Peabody releases statement on gas levels at North Goonyella

Published by
World Coal,


Yesterday, Peabody reported that gas levels at its North Goonyella mine in Queensland (Australia) remain elevated having been variable, with employees and other personnel remaining above ground. Safety is Peabody’s number one priority, and our focus has been on conducting a methodical approach to restore normal gas levels in a safe manner. 

The company is reportedly working with the Queensland Mines Inspectorate and third-party experts as we continue a progressive plan aimed at reducing gas levels. Responsive steps taken to-date have included drilling bore holes for monitoring; pumping nitrogen; and sealing off one of the entries to the completed longwall mining area.

Peabody appreciates the ongoing work of the team at North Goonyella, the Inspectorate, independent technical experts, union representatives and other people engaged in the process.
