Curragh has returned to full operations after the tragic death of Clark Peadon on November 21.

Resources Safety & Health Queensland Inspectors have lifted the directive to suspend all dragline operations at Curragh, subject to compliance with a staged return to work plan and schedule for dragline operations provided by the mine.

"Return to work safety and training sessions will now take place prior to all dragline shifts recommencing," Coronado said.  

"Following the resumption of dragline operations, there are no ongoing directives or restrictions on the mine." 

Prior to the lifting of the directive Curragh resumed all non-dragline operations in a gradual and phased approach from November 24.

"The investigation into the incident by the company is continuing," Coronado said.

"The company continues to provide counselling and support to all employees, contractors and their families following this tragic event."
