Copper Mines of Tasmania Pty Ltd Decides to Put its Mount Lyell Copper Mine Closes Operations

Copper Mines of Tasmania has decided to put its Mount Lyell copper mine in Queenstown, Tasmania, under care and maintenance, leaving 200 workers jobless. The mine was closed in January this year following the death of three miners within two months: two died after falling from a height and another miner died in a mud rush. Since the closure, CMT has been paying half salaries to 239 out of 320 employees who worked at the mine. The company had hoped to restart production at the mine this month, but a rock fall on a ventilation shaft last week has further delayed the plans.
