Oakey North Mine rescue team

The Oaky North Mine rescue team battled in 39-degree heat to take out first place at the 51st Australian Mines Rescue Competition held at Cook Colliery Mine last week.

Second place went to Broadmeadow Mine, third place to North Wambo Mine (NSW) and fourth place went to Crinum mine.

Operation Manager & Chief Assessor for Queensland Mine Rescue Services, Raymond Smith says the hot weather at this year’s event put the teams through their paces.

“The event pushed the teams to their limits and it means that they’re prepared for extreme conditions,” he said.

“Competitors can then take their knowledge and their skills back to day release and pass it on.”
