The North Goonyella team once again showed skill and courage in mines rescue.

The event was held at Anglo Coal's Grasstree mine in central Queensland.
 
The North Goonyella team pitted their skills against five other contenders and came out victorious after competing in both underground and surface scenarios, a Peabody Energy spokesperson told Australia's Mining Monthly. 
 
"Results like these prove that Australia has some of the best prepared and experienced rescue teams in the global mining industry," the spokesperson said.
 
The North Goonyella team will go on to compete at the EK Healy Cup to be held at Kestrel mine on July 26.
