Baralaba Flooding

The big news for the last few weeks in mining has been the amazing amount of flooding around Central Queensland. Nearly every mine has been affected in some way. The most prominent of these has been the complete flooding of the Baralaba coal mine, when the Dawson River broke through the levee.
