Queenstown, Tasmania
Queenstown is an old mining town in Western Tasmania, that has been recognised by the National Trust as a historic town. It is about a 5 hour drive from Hobart on the Lyell Highway. Mining began here in the late 1800s, first with gold and later copper. It remains an important industry and the main employer. In 2005-06, Copper Mines of Tasmania produced 2.6 million tonnes of copper concentrate. Tourism is a growing industry. Queenstown is the base of the West Coast Wilderness Railway, which runs to Strahan and draws large numbers of tourists. Queenstown is an interesting town, nestled in the Queen River valley. Summers can be hot and can reach 30+ degrees, although it is not uncommon to have snow on Mt Owen in December. Winters are cool and wet, with snow falling regularly on the peaks on the West Coast Range that can be seen from the town. It is not uncommon for the roads into Queenstown to be blocked, and for the town cut off for short periods during the middle of winter. The best time to visit is between December and April. Many of the early buildings remain and a stroll around town is a must if you want a sense of what the town was like during the height of the copper mining operations. The drive in to Queenstown over Gormanston Hill is a startling introduction to the town. The barren landscape was brought about by the combination of tree removal for the smelters, and the subsequent years of pollution. Trees were logged to fuel the furnaces of the smelters in the early years. Then large amounts of sulphur from the smelting process polluted the soils, killing much of the ground vegetation. Heavy rainfall of the area washed away most of the topsoil. The combination of the effects of tree removal, heavy rains, smelter fumes and uncontrolled bushfires, are evident in the bare ground areas that are spread across the foothills of Mount Lyell and Mount Owen to this day. Queenstown is a great stopover when visiting the West Coast, with many West Coast attractions only a short drive away. Queenstown has a good range of places to sleep, as well as very picturesque drives to the nearby attractions. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Indian smelter shutdown casts uncertainty on Tasmanian copper mine restart
Indian smelter shutdown casts uncertainty on Tasmanian copper mine restart: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-05/mt-lyell-start-up-questioned-after-indian-smelter-close/9835032. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 Indian smelter shutdown casts uncertainty on Mt Lyell copper mine restart in Tasmania By Damian McIntyre There are new uncertainties about the reopening of the mothballed Mount Lyell copper mine on Tasmania's west coast.Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT) put the mine into caretaker mode more than four years ago after three miners died in two incidents, resulting in about 200 job losses, but there are plans to reopen it with help from a Tasmanian State Government subsidy.CMT parent company Vedanta has now been forced to shut down its copper smelter in India due to environmental concerns.CMT was sending its ore to the Indian smelter when the operation was in production, and the plan was to send the product there again when operations recommenced.The Tamil Nadu State Government's order to permanently shut down the Tuticorin smelter came after police shot dead 13 protesters at the site in May, when people opposing a planned expansion of the site had gathered.Wayne Bould from the Tasmanian Minerals and Energy Council has downplayed concerns."It's not the only smelter in the world, and certainly any company has the capacity to make an arrangement with another smelter somewhere else in the world," Mr Bould said."Speculating doesn't add any value to the argument about Mt Lyell either way, and alternative arrangements can be in place.The Mount Lyell mine at Queenstown was the site of three fatal mining accidents.Craig Gleeson, 45, and Alistair Lucas, 25, fell to their deaths in the Mt Lyell Copper Mine in Queenstown when the wooden platform they were working on collapsed in December 2013.Thirty-nine days later, 55-year-old Michael Welsh died after he was crushed by a sudden inundation of mud while he was removing sediment from the same mine. The Tasmanian Government has committed $9.5 million for projects aimed at restarting the mine.An announcement about a reopening was expected this year.West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers said he wasn't concerned."Vedanta's a really big company, they've invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the care and maintenance and the redevelopment there, along with the State Government's contribution so I think it will reopen in due course," he said.In a presentation on Vedanta's website, the company's chairman Anil Agarwal said the company wanted the Indian smelter to continue operating."We are waiting for clearance from the court and the government to restart the plant," he said."We are strictly following what the court and government orders are."A spokesman from Copper Mines of Tasmania said it still planned to reopen the Queenstown mine, and was looking at other options for smelting its product. #Indian, #smelter, #shutdown, #casts, #uncertainty, #Tasmanian, #copper, #mine, #restart #mtlyell, #coppermine, #smelter, #close, #startup

TVT-6: Abt Railway 1963
TVT-6 (now WIN Television): The Abt Railway was operated by the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company and carried copper from the Mount Lyell Mine to Regatta Point since 1892. By the early 60's maintenance of bridges and aging rolling-stock forced the Company to transfer to road transport. The last ceremonial train ran on 29 June 1963 although rail operations continued for a further six weeks to enable back-freight and rolling-stock to be transferred back to Queenstown. TVT-6 Hobart compiled two stories on the Railway, in this commentary is by Greame Smith and production is by Stan Draper, one of the early pioneers of Television in Tasmania. The film is owned by WIN Television (Tasmania). Rare photos of this railcar can be viewed on the following site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/7728884250/in/photostream

Mt Lyell mine safety in spotlight at inquest into worker deaths
Vedanta Resources Mt Lyell mine safety in spotlight at inquest into worker deaths By Laura Beavis An inquest starting in Tasmania's west today will investigate three deaths that stunned the north west Tasmanian mining community over a six-week period in 2013.Craig Gleeson, 45, and Alistair Lucas, 25, fell to their deaths in the Mt Lyell Copper Mine in Queenstown when the wooden platform they were working on collapsed on December 9 of that year. Thirty-nine days later, 55-year-old Michael Welsh died after he was crushed by a sudden inundation of mud while he was removing sediment from the same mine on January 17, 2014.The mine went into care and maintenance mode soon after Mr Welsh's death, resulting in about 200 job losses.Coroner Simon Cooper is set hear evidence in Queenstown for two days before the inquest into the deaths moves to Hobart for another two-and-a-half weeks.The inquest will first examine the deaths of Mr Gleeson and Mr Lucas, before considering the circumstance of Mr Welsh's death.The mine's owner, Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT), pleaded guilty in 2016 to failing to comply with health and safety duties in relation to the first two deaths, and was fined $225,000. During the sentencing at Burnie's Magistrates Court, Magistrate Tamara Jago said CMT did not test the strength of the timber platform.A Worksafe Tasmania report had found the wood used in a temporary platform Mr Gleeson had made to carry out the work did not meet Australian standards. It also found the chipping hammer Mr Gleeson was using came loose and slammed into the timber, splitting the platform and causing the pair to fall 22 metres onto broken rocks. CMT and former mine manager Gerard Clyde pleaded not guilty to workplace safety charges in relation to Mr Welsh's death, but the prosecution was dropped after a magistrate disallowed expert evidence from mining consultant John Webber. However coroner Simon Cooper has already ruled that he will hear evidence from Mr Webber at next week's inquest.CMT is preparing a business case to reopen the Mt Lyell mine with upgraded environmental and safety standards, but a final decision on the mine's future is yet to be made.The Tasmanian Government last year gave the mine's owner Vedanta Resources $9.5 million in grants for four projects to prepare for the mine's reopening.This mine, which was founded in 1883 and began full-scale production in 1896, was acquired by Vedanta in 2000.Vedanta is controlled through Volcan Investments, the family trust of Indian mining magnate Anil Agarwal.

Miners had used pine board platform for years before fatal fall, inquest hears
Mount Lyell mine inquest hears pine board platform used for years before fatal fall By Georgie Burgess An inquest into three deaths at the Mount Lyell copper mine in Queenstown has heard a temporary wooden platform from which two men fell to their deaths after it broke was replaced with one designed by structural engineers.Craig Gleeson, 45, and Alistair Lucas, 25, fell to their deaths in the Mt Lyell Copper Mine in Queenstown when the platform they were working — made of King Billy pine —collapsed on December 9, 2013. The coronial inquest, which began this morning, has heard that after the accident, and before the mine put into care-and-maintenance mode, a replacement platform designed by engineers was installed at a cost of $1,700.Neither man was wearing a harness while working in the shaft 500 metres underground, and they fell 22 metres onto broken rock.While Mr Gleeson was unresponsive when help arrived, Mr Lucas was heard moaning.A cage was not deployed to rescue the men because it was thought they were still in the shaft and could be injured during its descent, so rescuers abseiled down.Mr Lucas died in an ambulance.The King Billy pine platform was deemed fit to use because it had been used for years previously without incident. It was later found to be not compliant with workplace standards. The inquest is also investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of 55-year-old Michael Welsh.He was killed 39 days later when he was crushed by a sudden inundation of mud while removing sediment from the same mine on January 17, 2014.Operators hope to reopen mineThe mine's owner, Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT), pleaded guilty in 2016 to failing to comply with health and safety duties in relation to the first two deaths, and was fined $225,000.

Predicting mine waste environmental impacts before it’s too late
Mining for precious, base and ferrous metals can result in millions of tonnes of tailings and waste rock, which if left unmanaged can have dire environmental consequences. Laura’s research is finding methods to predict how a mine’s waste might impact the environment before it’s even created.
