Coronado Global Resources (CRN) has updated the market on the tragic death at its Curragh Mine Complex.
Operations at Curragh have been suspended since the start of the week when a contract employee from Thiess was fatally injured.
The incident occurred during a tyre change activity in the main workshop.

The company is supportive of this order and all efforts to improve the safety at all of its operations.
"Coronado will not permit these activities on its site until both the company and the Inspectorate are satisfied with the safety of these activities," the company said.
Return to work safety sessions are taking place with all workers on the site this morning. Unaffected areas around Curragh complex will resume by Friday.
CEO Gerry Spindler says the company's priorities remains the welfare and safety of its employees and contractors and supporting the family and all those impacted by this tragic incident.
"Our hearts go out to those mourning the loss of a loved one, friend and valued colleague," Gerry said.
“Coronado is conducting a full investigation to understand the causes of this incident and continues to support the third party reviews underway," he added.
The company and Theiss are continuing to provide counselling and support to employees and their families.
