LMI’s specialist division, LMI Mining, has been appointed as insurance claims experts following the coal mine explosion that occurred yesterday in Queensland. The team headed by Murray Rowley has decades of experience in claims.

In discussing explosions in mines with Mr. Rowley, we learned that risk management practices have vastly improved over the years, and that dust curtains are used to suppress explosions. While the investigation will determine the cause and reasons for the extent of this tragedy, we suspect that the risk management measures used in today’s well-run mines greatly reduced the injuries and material damage.

Our thoughts are with the injured miners and their families. We wish them a full and speedy recovery.
