Failure to meet dust-monitoring obligations may close four Queensland coal mines, Minister says

Four Queensland underground coal mines risk closure after allegedly failing to meet their dust-monitoring obligations, Mines Minister Anthony Lynham has told State Parliament.

The mines are Glencore's Oaky North and Oaky No.1 at Tieri, and Anglo's Moranbah North and Grosvenor, north-west of Rockhampton in central Queensland.

Dr Lynham said the dust-monitoring failure occurred during the second quarter of this year, and could lead to the mines' closures.
