Miner dies in NSW
Investigations launched into the death of miner found dead next to his car on haul road.
Wednesday 21 June 2017  

A 48-year-old miner at the Wollongong Coal owned Wongawilli Colliery in New South Wales has been found dead near a light vehicle on an access road.

The miner had been working at a disused ventilation shaft on the surface of a coal mine when he told fellow contractors he felt unwell. He left the work site alone in a light vehicle to seek medical attention and was later found lying on the ground near the light vehicle in the middle of the access road that leads to the ventilation shaft.

The NSW Ambulance Service responded to the emergency call and determined that the worker was deceased.

The NSW Police, the NSW Coroner and the NSW Resources Regulator have all commenced investigations to determine the cause and circumstances of the incident.

The ventilation shaft the miner was working on, is no longer used by the mine and is subject to remediation and rehabilitation work.

The workers were conducting soil sampling, and clean-up works around the ventilation shaft as part of the rehabilitation of the disused mine surface infrastructure.

At the time of writing, no name has been released.
