Statement from NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee
On behalf of the NSW mining industry, the NSW Minerals Council expresses its sincere condolences to all who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy.
From what is known already, and as more details emerge in the days ahead, many people across the mining communities of Singleton, Muswellbrook and beyond will be coming to terms with the loss of family members, friends, neighbours and work colleagues.
In particular, our thoughts are with those from the mining workforce and their families who have suffered the loss or injury of loved ones.
Our Member Companies are working to provide support for our people across the local mining workforce at this difficult time.
We will also continue to liaise with local leaders to support the mining communities of the Hunter where so many of our people and their families live.
