Minimal impact from weather event

29 January 2013

The New Hope Group’s operations suffered only minimal impact from Queensland’s wild weather over the Australia Day long weekend.

Temporary disruptions were experienced during the weekend at the New Acland and West Moreton mining operations, and at the Queensland Bulk Handling (QBH) coal loading facility at the Port of Brisbane.

“With the likelihood of roads being cut to our mining operations we made the call for safety reasons to temporarily halt operations over the weekend,” a New Hope Group spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said New Acland and QBH had resumed full operations, while West Moreton was expected to resume full production tomorrow.

No infrastructure damage occurred on any New Hope Group site.
