The win made it a double for the Oaky Creek team, who already took gold at the coveted EK Healy Cup staged at the North Goonyella mine during August.

The team was led by captain Mark Freeman and included Victor Melendez, Silvio Coppo, David Thomasson, Scott Dobbie, Ian Maud and Gianni Storti.

Peabody Energy’s North Goonyella finished second and Anglo Coal’s German Creek Southern Colliery placed third.

Of the nine teams competing, four were from Queensland, four from New South Wales and one from Tasmania.
