An electrical cable has become damaged and released energy after becoming caught on the house of a dragline while an overhead crane was being relocated.

While the cable released energy, the earth leakage protection tripped as per design.

The Queensland Mines Inspectorate said the cable had been incorrectly reinstalled after a recent service.
