Information:

A mining fatality which took place in January 1998 has recently been the subject of a Coronial inquest.

The deceased was crushed under the weight of 15 sheets of steel mesh intended for use in a ground support program. The 2.4m x 3.0m mesh sheets each weighed approximately 29 kg, giving a combined weight of about 435 kg. They had been stacked leaning against the sidewall of a drift, but had evidently toppled over and the deceased was found lying underneath them by a work colleague.
