Donkin Mine Permanently Closing
The owners of the Donkin Mine say the mine is closing for good.
Kameron Collieries blames what it calls adverse geological conditions in the mine for the shutdown.
The mine has been plagued by a series of roof falls that have temporarily suspended operations.
Kameron says the mine will not be sealed but maintained by a small staff to ventilate it and keep it dewatered.
It says it’s disappointed circumstances compelled it to make the decision and thanks its workforce and the community for their support.
