Response to media coverage regarding Dugald River

In response to today’s reporting by The Australian newspaper regarding safety directives issued to the Dugald River mine by the Resources Safety and Health Queensland, MMG wishes to clarify that these directives are outcomes of routine inspections by the regulator.

These three safety directives issued to Dugald River that required suspension of activities since July 2020 were related to single pieces of machinery, tyre handling and an underground truck fire.

In all cases, remediation was undertaken swiftly and inspected with return to safe work conditions.

Directives issued by RSHQ related to select issues or events and did not include suspension of broader operations.
