On 28 March 2019, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Werris Creek Coal Pty Limited for a blast at the Werris Creek Mine on 4 May 2018 that exceeded the airblast overpressure criteria at the Kyooma and Glenara blast monitoring stations. The Department’s investigation found that the area had been over excavated prior to the blast which had not been adequately factored into the blast design. Werris Creek Mine cooperated with the Department’s investigation and has since implemented additional processes to avoid similar occurrences, which will be reflected in an updated Blast Management Plan.
