The Bengalla open cut mine in NSW.

Bengalla Mining Company spokesman said everyone at the company has been diligently responding "with heavy hearts to the tragic event on Saturday night at the mine".
 
"First and foremost Bengalla will continue to support Quinton's family, our staff and suppliers as we come together at this difficult time," he said.
 
"Bengalla is working towards resuming production which has been suspended since Saturday night.
 
"We plan to begin loading trains later today [Tuesday] and have staff on site from this evening assessing operations.
 
Moore is believed to have died after a tyre fell on him on Saturday night but the Resources Regulator is continuing with its investigation.  
 
"Bengalla's priorities are clear," Halfpenny said.
 
"Foremost is the wellbeing of those affected and our people. Second, full cooperation with the ongoing investigations. Third, to resume operations safely and slowly from today."
