Qld board of inquiry hearings into Grosvenor exceedances delayed

THE Queensland Board of Inquiry into coal mine safety has delayed its investigation into the 27 methane exceedances and the serious accident at Anglo American’s Grosvenor mine because the regulator has not issued its report on the incident yet and witnesses do not wish to give evidence that may incriminate them.

While there was a delay, relevant evidence from expert reports and public submissions will continue.

Board chairman Terry Martin said the board had originally slated the public hearings into Grosvenor to start on September 15.

"That is no longer possible," he said.
