[Ferro-Alloys.com]Australian mining reported that Anglo American’s mining activities will return at the Moranbah North coal mine in Queensland this month, with the Grosvenor mine to resume in late-2021. After both mines suffered major setbacks following a respective gas threat and an ignition, Anglo American has undertaken significant precautionary steps to enhance the safety of both operations.
Anglo American chief executive officer of metallurgical coal Mr Tyler Mitchelson said the road back to ramp up had been comprehensive. He said “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. To ensure ongoing safety, as some workers enter the mines for the first time in over a year, height of technology will be deployed. 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.”
