An Xstrata spokesperson confirmed the production slowdowns, including the union’s move to limit output of the wash plant to no more than 200 tonnes per hour, were continuing.

Tahmoor is in its eighth week of industrial action with miners participating in rolling stoppages and also running the longwall on limited cutting capacity.

A resolution to the dispute over a new enterprise agreement is not likely until 2010.

The Xstrata spokesperson said the company was disappointed and hoped the mining union will continue to negotiate.
