Operations have resumed at Anglo American's Moranbah North mine in Queensland.

Anglo American decided to allow additional time before restarting operational activities, including the longwall move, at the Moranbah North mine on Monday.
 
The Queensland Mines Inspectorate investigation into the incident is ongoing, as is Anglo American's investigation.
 
Anglo American head of underground operations Glen Britton said: "This is a difficult time for our people, their families and the Moranbah community as we come to terms with the tragic loss of our colleague, Bradley Hardwick, and we will continue to provide support wherever needed.
 
"Our four colleagues who were injured in the incident are all recovering well. We are providing support to assist in their return to work when they are ready."
